Pa. House approves voter ID bill

    The Pennsylvania House has approved the state’s voter ID bill, and Gov. Tom Corbett is expected to sign it.

    The bill require voters to show photo identification before their votes could be counted, beginning with this year’s presidential election. An Associated Press report says today’s vote was 104-88.

    Democrats and Republicans have been debating the bill for months, with Dems alleging the bill is a way to keep left-leaners from voting and Republicans arguing the bill will prevent voter fraud.
