Philadelphia (CNN) - No I.D., no voting.
That's the bottom line in Pennsylvania.
The state's new voter registration law has one 92-year-old citizen concerned she won't be able to cast a ballot for the first time in 50 years.
"I can't and won't be able to vote because I don't have any birth certificate and an I.D. And that's because someone stole my pocketbook from me years ago and I have been trying to get it back every since. And I've never been able to get my I.D. back," said Viviette Applewhite. "Because I do really want to vote, it takes my legal rights away from me and I don't see why I should not be able to vote because I don't have a piece of paper with something on it, state I.D. or whatever they call it."
Other states do allow eligible voters who lack I.D. to cast a ballot by affirming their identity in an affidavit at the polls.
But in Pennsylvania, people who don't have proper identification are given provisional ballots, and those votes won't be counted unless the voter produces a photo I.D. within six days after the election.
