Organization fights to make college IDs compliant

Common Cause Wisconsin Executive Director Jay Heck hopes the University of Wisconsin System makes it easier for college students to vote in upcoming elections. Student groups and organizations like Common Cause Wisconsin are pushing the UW System to make their identification cards at all 13 of its campuses compliant with the state’s voting laws. It would require the student identification cards to have a signature line and an expiration date of two years rather than five. Heck believes with more students from out-of-state staying in Wisconsin after graduation, make the identification cards compliant now can cause a good habit for the future.

Currently, only four of the UW System’s 13 four-year campuses have compliant voter student ID cards. Eight private universities and colleges and 11 technical colleges are also in compliance with the state’s voter ID laws.
