To: Carole Aichele, Secretary of the Commonwealth and Local County Elections Officials in Pennsylvania
Statewide Just Say "No" to Pennsylvania Voter ID Law
Pennsylvania's Secretary of the Commonwealth Carole Aichele is in charge of the state's new Voter ID Law and she just admitted, "I don't know what the law says." Another local official testified in court that she was "anticipating a mess" on Election Day because of the new law.
So why would anyone enforce this outrageous new law that could prevent up to 758,000 registered Pennsylvanians from voting?
Already, some election officials have started to say they won't comply with these outlandish requirements. And we need election officials across Pennsylvania to join in, to the full extent of their legal authority, and Just Say No to enforcing this law.
That's why we're calling on Secretary of the Commonwealth Carole Aichele and Local County Elections Officials in Pennsylvania to join in, to the full extent of their legal authority, and Just Say No to enforcing the new Voter ID Law.
Why is this important?
State Representative Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) told the Republican State Committee on June 23, 2012, that Pennsylvania's new Voter ID Law would "allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania." He as much as admitted it will turn away eligible voters—mostly the poor, elderly and women—who traditionally vote Democratic. However, one thing it will not do—what supporters originally proposed at the law's inception—is prevent voter fraud.
State attorneys defending the new Voter ID Law at a hearing presented no evidence that in-person electoral fraud is likely to occur this November without the law, according to a court document. The state and the parties challenging both agree in the court document that neither side knows of cases of in-person voter fraud in Pennsylvania. However, the new law could prevent up to 758,000 registered Pennsylvanians from voting! Our problem in this country is low voter turn out, not people voting multiple times! This is a violation of our civil rights and must be stopped.
