    Because of a court decision, photo ID is Not required to vote in PA in this election. See:http://866ourvote.org

    The link is from the web site  Election Protection which is a great source of accurate, nonpartisan info on voting. There is a map on voter ID requirements in all states on the home page, in the screen that changes.

      Voters who are voting for the first time (who registered by mail without providing identification) or who have not previously voted in their election district may be required to present identification with the voter’s name and address on it in order to vote.  For first time voters, any of the following forms of photo identification with the voter’s name and address on it is acceptable:
      (1) a valid state driver’s license, (2) a valid state or federal identification card, (3) a valid U.S. passport, (4) a valid student identification card, (5) a valid employee identification card, or (6) a valid U.S. armed forces identification card.

      A first time voter or a voter who has not previously voted in the election district without photo identification may still vote if he or she presents one of the following forms of identification with her/his name and address on it: (1) a valid state or federal non-photo identification card, (2) a firearms permit, (3) a current utility bill, (4) a current bank statement, (5) a paycheck, (6) a government check, or (7) confirmation issued by the County Voter Registration Office (voter’s registration card).
