Pennsylvania's voter ID law will no longer be a problem for the father of CNBC host Jim Cramer. Cramer tweeted that his father, a veteran, lacked the specific form of photo identification that would allow him to voter in November under Pennsylvania's voter ID law. Cramer now says that Pennsylvania authorities contacted him and assured him they'll make sure his dad can vote.

I never meant the Pa law to be a political issue. My dad has never missed an election. He will vote. But i don't know who for!!!— Jim Cramer (@jimcramer) September 11, 2012
When my dad and i talked about this we had no idea how to turn and he LOVES the right to vote. I praise Twitter for making things right...— Jim Cramer (@jimcramer) September 11, 2012
That's one down, hundreds of thousands of registered voters who lack state-issued identification to go.
