ACLU says Pa. corrects false voter info in Spanish



Published: Mon, November 5, 2012 @ 1:51 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union says Pennsylvania officials quickly corrected false information for first-time voters on its Spanish-language voter-information website.

The ACLU’s legal director in Pennsylvania, Vic Walczak, said today the Department of State had posted wrong information on the kind of identification that first-time voters must show, but corrected it within hours of his complaint.

Only voters appearing for the first time in a polling place must show ID, but that includes things such as a bank statement or utility bill.

Voters may be asked for a photo ID, but they’re not required to have one.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams says his office will have mobile units available to be dispatched to any polling place if there are reported problems of voter intimidations, fraud and harassment.
