Voters in Lycoming County still will be asked to show photo identification at the polls on Election Day - Tuesday, Nov. 6 - but those without it still may vote if their names are included in the poll book, according to Sandy Adams, county director of voting services.
Election workers originally were instructed to require a photo ID for all voters, but a Commonwealth Court decision ruled that voters without one still may cast a ballot.
First-time voters and those who have moved to a new voting precinct still will have to present ID, Adams said.
Acceptable ID includes a driver's license, identification card issued from the state Department of Transportation, any government, school, military or employer-issued photo ID.
First-time voters who do not have a photo ID can present other forms of identification including: voter ID card, non-photo government ID card issued from the state or U.S. government, firearm permit, government check or current utility bill, bank statement or paycheck.
A voting machine containing a sample ballot is on public display in the county Voter Services offices at Executive Plaza, 330 Pine St. Sample ballots also will appear on the county's website at www.lyco.org by Oct. 23.
The last day to apply for an absentee ballot is by 5 p.m. Oct. 30 in the Voter Services offices, she added.
Election results will be displayed in the Lycoming County commissioners' board room at Executive Plaza and online at www.lyco.org. Adams said online results will be updated every five to seven minutes.
On Thursday, the Lycoming County Board of Elections also approved a list of Election Day rovers and workers.
