A Washington County commissioner and candidate for congress said he might not be able to vote in the November election.
Larry Maggi has been notified by the state that his license doesn't match his voter ID.
On Maggi's drivers license, his name is listed as Lawrence Owen Maggi. On his voter registration, he's listed as Larry Maggi.
The small difference could deny Maggi the right to cast a normal vote, leading to a provisional ballot in November, when voters will be required to show a license that "substantially confirms" their voter ID.
Maggi is one of 750,000 people in Pennsylvania who have this discrepancy.
His campaign team launched a website letlarryvote.com to petition an injunction on the new voter ID law. That law is supposed to go into effect in less than 90 days.
Maggi said the state isn't ready to enact the law, and he doesn't want voters to be surprised when they go to the polls.
"It's frustrating. I've voted since I was 21. That was the law. I served in the Marine Corps for that right to vote. I served as a state trooper to protect those rights. Then, all of a sudden here in 2012, when I'm running for an office, I'm not allowed to vote," said Maggi.
The voter ID law is being challenged in state court, and there should be a ruling as early as next week. If it stands, Maggi hopes his petition will lead to an injunction so the law won't affect voters this November.
