Matt Smith (D-Allegheny) is urging the commonwealth’s State Department to stop airing its voter ID advertisements.</p><p>The ads, which began running earlier this week, say voters will be asked, but not required, to show a photo ID at the polls, but Smith said the commercials are almost identical to the original ads that say photo ID is a requirement.</p><p>Smith calls the ads “confusing” and “misleading” because they give the impression that identification will be mandatory for the November municipal elections.</p> Fri, 11 Oct 2013 17:19:35 +0000 Michael Lynch 18005 at http://wesa.fm
