No Photo ID Needed
Neumann University supports your right to vote.
There is no requirement to show a photo ID to vote in the November 6 election. If you are a first-time voter, however, you must show some form of identification. A driver’s license or student ID will work. So will current paychecks or bank statements as long as they contain your name and address.

Here’s what you need to know about how to vote in Pennsylvania in 2012. For details about New Jersey, Delaware and other states, visit www.brennancenter.org and click on the 50-State Voter Guide Map.
1. Register to vote
You have to register in order to vote in November. Click on the following link, then the state of Pennsylvania and then “full details” to download and print a voter registration application and find out where to send it:
The application must be received or postmarked at least 30 days before Election Day, which is November 6, 2012. The application deadline in Pennsylvania is October 9.
Please contact the Student Activities Office (Bachmann 43A, 610-558-5619) if you have questions about or need help registering. Getting advice is critical if you live in a state other than Pennsylvania and you’re a resident student at Neumann.
2. Vote on or before November 6
You must vote in the polling place that corresponds to your residence. To find your polling place, go to http://www.brennancenter.org. A link to polling place locations is on the same page as the voter registration application form.
If you know that you will not be able to vote at your polling place on November 6, you are entitled to cast an absentee ballot. Instructions and details about deadlines for absentee ballots are available at the link to the Brennan Center for Justice, above.
