State Senator Judy Ward (R-30) and state Representative Jeff Wheeland (R-83) are promoting a plan that will allow voters to decide if the Pennsylvania Constitution should be amended to require identification each time a voter casts a ballot. Currently, voters are required to show identification the first time they vote at a polling place. Senate Bill 735 and the companion bill, House Bill 1596, asks voters to decide if identification should be required every time a ballot is cast. The language must be passed in two consecutive legislative sessions. The earliest the proposed amendment would reach voters for consideration is May 2023. Unlike a piece of legislation, Constitutional Amendments do not need the Governor’s approval. The bills would go straight to the voters for their input.
