Montgomery County Commissioners Bruce Castor and Leslie Richards react to the news that Judge Robert Simpson has upheld Pennsylvania's Voter ID Law.

Montgomery County Commissioners Bruce Castor and Leslie Richards were in Norristown at a groundbreaking ceremony for the new parking lot expansion when news that Judge Robert Simpson upheld Pennsylvania's controversial Voter ID law requiring voters to present a valid photo ID at the polls in order to vote.

When they learned of the decision, Castor and Richards offered their thoughts on the news to Patch.

Lots of people do none of those things. As an example, my grandmother. She does not drive, doesn't drink alcohol, doesn't smoke, no welfare, no food stamps, doesn't need ID to deposit a check to her own account, doesn't need to buy a firearm, doesn't have a credit card, has an existing bank account, owns her home, and is a widow. As for the hospital, if she is found unconscious or otherwise incapacitated, the hospital still has to admit her with or without ID.

Just got confirmation from Voter Services that no photo ID is required for absentee ballots since on an absentee ballot you give your SS#. Relieved that I won't have to take my Grandmother to get a photo ID since she is not well.

Even with voter ID who checks for double SSN or photos? There are people who get numerous IDs giving different addresses, some are empty lots, and vote many times in different districts. Computers are needed to verify SSNs and addresses to see if individuals actually reside there. Using utility bills helps but a boarder wouldn't have those. There are many flaws but still a good law.
