Key Driver Licensing Centers Open the Day Before Election Day
HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Forty-eight PennDOT Driver Licensing Centers, normally closed on Mondays, will be open on Monday, Nov. 5, the day before Election Day, to better serve customers with last-minute Voter ID needs.
In recent months, PennDOT has worked closely with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), the union representing its Driver Licensing Center employees, to reach this agreement.
"I applaud the efforts of AFSCME to work with us on this important effort," said PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch. "Our employees have been working tirelessly to be certain that any Pennsylvanian who needs an ID for voting purposes has it, and efforts like this show our commitment to getting the job done."
Since the passage of the law in March, PennDOT has been working aggressively to make the voting ID process as customer-friendly as possible. Two major milestones include working with the Pennsylvania Department of Health to facilitate a process for customers who do not have a birth certificate with a raised seal, and extending hours at five Driver License Centers in Philadelphia County.
PennDOT and its partners at the Pennsylvania Departments of State and Health are dedicated to delivering on Gov. Tom Corbett's commitment that every eligible voter has an opportunity to obtain the photo identification needed to vote.
The addresses of the affected centers can be found online at www.dmv.state.pa.us or by calling 1-800-932-4600.
