At the Centre Region Senior Center polling location, 131 S. Fraser St., voters are handed an additional piece of paper after submitting a ballot and receiving the iconic "I Voted" sticker.
Standing at the exit of the polling center, Brandon Shuey handed out small slips of paper outlining the necessary requirements for photo identification in future elections. The paper explains the acceptable forms of identification and how to settle disputes with having a photo taken for identification purposes, as well as contact numbers for additional information.
"I'm just letting [voters] know what's acceptable for a photo ID and what's not, for the next time they vote," Shuey said.
Shuey said he's a volunteer working on behalf of Bellefonte Area High School. He said the high school had a program where students could sign up to volunteer on election day, and that teachers picked from that pool of volunteers. While the volunteers from the high school, including Shuey himself, are predominately senior students, he said there are a few juniors who were selected for other polling locations today.
Shuey is not currently of-age to vote, and described this volunteer work as his "civic duty" for this year's election and to help aid in future elections to come.
