The state has made yet another tweak in its voter ID law to make it easier for voters to have a proper identification in order to vote in the November election.
The Corbett administration told a Commonwealth Court hearing Tuesday that a newly streamlined process for getting a voting-only ID card was being put in effect this week. The move was to satisfy a state Supreme Court order to make the voter ID process as easy as possible.
Effective this week, people seeking a voter-only ID need only to swear under penalty of law that they have no other form of ID and give their name, Social Security number, date of birth and address.
We keep hearing what a tough voter identification law Pennsylvania has.
And this supposedly tough law has been changed about three times in the past five months to make it relatively easy for anyone that wants to vote to have a proper ID at the polls in November.
Anyone who values the right to vote ought to want all the votes to be legitimate, in our view. That doesn't seem like a difficult request.
