Now that Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf has softened his stance on voter identification, Republican lawmakers in the state House say they’re taking another run at rewriting the state’s election code.
On Wednesday, the bill’s author, House State Government Committee Chairman Seth Grove, R-York, said he planned to reintroduce the bill that Wolf vetoed in June over its strict voter identification requirements.
In a memo asking colleagues for support, Grove cited an interview published Tuesday by the Philadelphia Inquirer in which Wolf said he’s open to tightening voter identification requirements, especially for mail-in voting.
