Kevin Humphreys, a 51-year-old unemployed Republican voter from Haverford, PA without a driver’s license, upon hearing about Pennsylvania’s new voter ID in April, began the process of acquiring a free voter ID. He requested the necessary forms from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) but was mailed the wrong form, but he filled it out anyway. After a month of no response from PennDOT, Humphreys called to only be told they never received his paperwork. PennDOT then mailed him more incorrect paperwork. A few weeks later after finally receiving and filling out the correct forms, he received a letter stating he had to pay $13.50 for the forms to be processed, despite a voter ID being free. A day later after calling and being forwarded to different PennDOT offices and employees, he received a call from a local employee who apologized and said they found his original paperwork and that his ID would be free. It took Humpherys three months in order to obtain the ID he needs to vote in November.
