The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said it has established a new procedure for the very oldest state residents to obtain the newly required voter ID after its computer system would not recognize the age of a 105-year-old woman.
PennDOT spokeswoman Jan McKnight said supervisors will be informing staff about the new process, developed two days after Alice Carlson ran into trouble getting identification because of her age.
Carlson showed up at a PennDOT licensing center in Snydersville on Wednesday, but the computer would not recognize an age above 104, the Pocono Record reported. Instead, it wanted to record her as being 6 years old.
