GAB approves certain college IDs, with stickers, for photo ID voting requirement


MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin elections panel has clarified the types of college identification cards that students can use to vote under the state’s new photo ID law.

The Government Accountability Board agreed to let schools place stickers on student ID’s to show when they were issued, and when they expire. Republicans decided to require students to use school ID’s for only two years after they’re issued – even though many schools make the cards good for up to five years.

Student voters can only use school ID’s from public-or-private schools that hand out associate degrees and higher. ID’s from the state’s technical and trade schools will not be accepted at the polls.

Students must also prove they’re enrolled in college when they vote – but the Legislature did not prescribe how that will be enforced.

Students can also use their drivers’ licenses from their home towns to vote back there.

The ID requirement takes effect next February.

The state’s League of Women Voters says the law is unconstitutional. League president Andrea Kaminski told the board today her group would file a lawsuit in state court in the next week-or-two.
