Wisconsin voter ID ruling and implications for students here

With federal appeals court approval of voter ID in Wisconsin, UW-Green Bay will be doing the following to address the implications for students in November:

• Any student will be able to request a free student ID that includes an issue and expiration date, which for those without a driver’s license would make it a valid identification for purposes of the law.

• Students also will be able to access a website that allows them to print off verification of their enrollment at UW-Green Bay, which they can then bring to the polls.

• University officials will be working in conjunction with student government to get the word out about the changes, what’s required and how UW-Green Bay can work with them to ensure they have the appropriate identification for Election Day.
