FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
State Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown
Brown to attend Voter ID event
Philadelphia, May 10 – State Rep. Vanessa Lowery Brown, D-Phila., will participate in a community voter ID event from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saturday, May 12, at the Progress Haddington Plaza, 56th and Vine streets.
Brown will speak on the new Voter ID law and how Pennsylvanians can protect their right to vote in this November’s election and all future elections.
Groups will be available to help anyone who needs a legal ID apply for birth certificates and Social Security cards, two items essential for anyone who needs to apply for a photo ID.
"We need to make sure that anyone who is eligible to vote does not lose that right over this new, unnecessary law," Brown said. "If the goal was to make it harder for seniors and the poor to vote, it won’t work. It will only bring the community together to protect voting rights for all."
The event is free, although filing for a certified birth certificate will have a fee.
