Request from Daily Kos and National Urban League

By request, a note from Daily Kos and the National Urban League:

On October 2, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania struck down parts of Pennsylvania's voter ID law, making photo identification unnecessary to cast a ballot in 2012. Poll workers can still ask for photo identification, but they must allow those without it to cast a regular ballot.

This is good news, but it is also confusing. This confusion could deter potential voters from casting a ballot this year, so it is imperative the public knows their legal rights. Please sign up to volunteer with Daily Kos and the National Urban League to mobilize and educate voters in Pennsylvania. You can take part, no matter where you live.

When you sign up, we will connect you to Pennsylvania organizers working with the National Urban League and Occupy the Vote. Those organizers will contact you with volunteer opportunities such as phone banking, canvassing, tabling, data entry, and providing transportation.
