Although photo IDs are not required to vote this Election Day, poll workers were still asking for them as voters made their way to cast their ballots Tuesday.
"We're supposed to ask, but they don't have to show it," Lower Southampton Township buidling judge of elections Matthew Kline said of voters showing poll workers their photo IDs
"We've been asking for photo IDs for the past two elections to get people used to it," Kline said.
Despite not having to show poll workers photo IDs to vote, Lower Southampton residents have not had a problem doing so anyway.
"More people are willing to show them. They have their IDs out and ready to show," Ferderbar Elementary poll worker Beth Holz told Patch Tuesday morning.
"We haven't had too much of a problem with photo IDs," Federbar judge of elections Helen Sroba said, noting that voters have been willing to show poll workers their IDs.
In fact, Ferderbar poll worker Rae Ann Smaron said that the majority of voters Tuesday morning had their IDs out before poll workers could even ask for them.
The same was true for voters at the Neshaminy Senior Activity Center and Feasterville Fire Company polling locations. Residents even had their electric bills ready to show poll workers as proof of their residency at many of the Lower Southampton poll locations.
