State House votes on voter ID on Monday

The state House will vote Monday on legislation requiring Pennsylvania voters to show photo identification to cast a ballot in November. The bill was approved by the Senate this week. Proponents say it will curb voter fraud. Opponents claim it will depress turnout.  The bill says ID such as a driver's license, passport, municipal employee ID, photo identification from nursing homes and universities is acceptable if there's a valid expiration date. People who don't have ID with them may cast provisional ballots and produce photo identification within six days.
