In Pennsylvania, 93-year-old Viviette Applewhite may not be able to vote this fall after she lost her driver’s license and social security card when her purse was stolen a few years ago. She never had a birth certificate. A joined a lawsuit filed by the NAACP and the ACLU against the voter ID law because the new law will disenfranchise her unless she can get the documents she needs – a birth certificate and social security card – to obtain her free voter ID from the state. She has since received her birth certificate but still has not been able to obtain a new social security card.
