    If you have no birth certificate, you still need to prove your identity and residence through multiple documents, and it takes about half a day, minimum.

    •  So, I'm right... (0+ / 0-)

      There IS a way around the birth certificate requirement... it just takes some time.

      I got my info, BTW, on a Pennsylvania Dem website:

      NEW Department of State ID

      If you do not have all of the documentation required to obtain a FREE PennDOT Photo ID and cannot obtain the needed documentation, you are eligible for a FREE Department of State Photo ID.

      Registered voters are able to obtain a Department of State ID card at their local PennDOT Driver’s License Center. PennDOT Driver’s License Center locations can be found on the web at or by phone through PennDOT’s customer call center at 1-800-932-4600.

      You will need to complete an oath/affirmation form stating that you do not have other acceptable identification and another form requesting this ID.

      To get a Department of State ID, you will need to provide the following information:

          Social Security Number
          Proof(s) of residence
          Previous name and/or address if changed within the past 12 months

      Voters who have registered within the past 30 days will be able to indicate that by marking a box on the form.

      After confirming the voter’s identity and voter registration with the Department of State, the registered voter will then be issued a free Department of State Photo ID card.
