PA Voter ID Coalition announces a Philadelphia County Transportation Program for voters needing a ride to PennDOT to obtain their voter ID card.

The Pennsylvania Voter ID Coalition, a group of more than 150 organizations statewide led by the Committee of Seventy, is expanding its efforts to help voters acquire acceptable, state-mandated Voter ID in time for the November 6th General Election.

Beginning next Wednesday, September 26th, the Voter ID Coalition will begin transporting voters at their request to PennDOT centers in order to help the voters obtain their necessary ID card.

“Our purpose in operating this transportation program is to assist the maximum number of voters possible to get to a PennDOT center in a coordinated fashion, so they can obtain valid ID cards and be ready to vote on election day,” said Joe Certaine, co-convenor of the PA Voter ID Coalition.

The program is being coordinated with the City of Philadelphia and the League of Women Voters. Voters should call 215-848-1283 for assistance arranging transportation to one of the PennDOT centers.

Voters will be transported from a network of City of Philadelphia recreation centers, New Courtland Senior Centers, Center in the Park, and other locations being utilized as neighborhood staging areas.

For more information, registered voters should call the PA Voter ID Coalition at 215-848-1283, during normal business hours (M-F, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.) The Coalition is headquartered at 310 W. Chelten Avenue in the Germantown section of Philadelphia.
