UNDATED (WSAU) Wisconsin elections’ officials have approved special I-D’s that will let students at nine U-W campuses vote in the places where they go to school. The Government Accountability Board has approved the designs for special two-year I-D’s which students will use only for voting. Most campuses give out I-D’s which are good for 4-to-5 years. But the new law that requires photo I-D’s at the polls says that college I-D’s must expire within two years, to make sure they’re current.

U-W spokesman David Giroux  says the Madison and Milwaukee campuses are among the nine where the voting-only I-D’s have been approved. Parkside, River Falls, Platteville, and the two-year colleges are still awaiting the state’s approval of their vote-only I-D’s. The accountability board has also approved U-W Superior’s plan to have all its I-D’s last for just two years.
