'Free' voter ID cards could cost $13.50

PennDOT officials said people should specifically mention "voter identification" when asking for what is supposed to be a free non-driver's license identification card that displays a photograph, name and address. Otherwise, they might be charged $13.50.

Obtaining one of the cards to satisfy Pennsylvania's new voter identification law is supposed to be free. But a Northumberland man told The Daily Item last week he was charged $13.50 while helping his mother obtain a card.

PennDOT said department workers are supposed to ask someone seeking a card if it's for voter ID, and if so, it's free.
