Dangers of voter ID law for college students

The Phila. Inquirer had an article today about some of the dangers of the new voter ID law for college students.

If you are a PA. resident, don't drive, but attend a college that is over the border - tough luck. You need a photo ID from a PA. college or a PA. drivers license.

If you do drive, but your drivers license is in another state - tough luck. That is the case for many students attending college in PA. who register to vote in PA. You cannot use a drivers license from another state to vote in Pa.

The Inquirer also had people go into the drivers license center last week and ask for a photo ID. They were told they had to pay for it, which is not true. PennDOT was asked, and they said in the article they had no plans to train their people about the law. Actually, the law says you only get a free ID if you completed an affidavit saying that you needed the ID to vote.
