Military dependents’ ID must contain an expiration date Employee photo ID issued by Federal, PA, County or Municipal government Photo ID cards from an accredited Pennsylvania public or private institution of higher learning Photo ID cards issued by a Pennsylvania care facility, including long-term care facilities, assisted living residences or personal care homes If you do not have one of these IDs and require one for voting purposes, you may be entitled to get one FREE OF CHARGE at a PennDOT Driver License Center. To find the Driver License Center nearest you, and learn what identification and residency documentation you will need to get a photo ID visit PennDOT's Voter ID website or call the Department of State's Voter ID Hotline at 1-877-VotesPA (1-877-868-3772).
