So a ketubah doesn’t count as a form of ID?


 The Philadelphia Inquirer recently published a story on one 91-year-old Jewish woman’s ordeal in attempting to navigate Bucks County’s new voter-ID law.

How do we know that Joyce Block is Jewish? And what does it have to do with the story?

Well, according to the report, the woman had an old voter registration card, but never had a driver’s license. And apparently inconsistent use of her maiden and married names on a variety of other documents was mucking things up.

Desperate times call for desperate measures… it sounds like she broke out her ketubah.

No dice:

Her Hebrew marriage license was rejected because the PennDot worker couldn’t read Hebrew.
