Valid Voter ID Definition

The Photo ID issued by the Commonwealth will show only the voter's photo and signature.  Please keep the original definition of "valid' proposed by the Department of Elections in June - that the photo look like the voter and that the signature matches.  All other requirements could create hardships for certain groups of voters. 


Keeping the original definition will protect our constitutional right to vote.
