CITY COMMISSION Chairwoman Stephanie Singer on Monday called on local colleges and polling firms to donate resources to identify city residents "least likely to be ready" with a state-approved identification for the Nov. 6 general election.
Singer denounced a ruling last week by a state Commonwealth Court judge who refused to issue a preliminary injunction to prevent the new voter-ID requirement from being used in the upcoming election.
"I need someone to step up," Singer said. "We need some help."
Singer also asked community leaders to draw up lists of people who need IDs, said voters should "adopt" two people without an ID to help them obtain it, and repeatedly stressed that any eligible voter without an ID on Election Day should show up at their polling place and vote using a provisional ballot.
