As we told you here earlier, the recent voter ID ruling could have implications for student voters, and UW-Green Bay is working to ensure all needs are met prior to Election Day. Student Government Association President Vanya Koepke spoke about the issue Wednesday (Sept. 17) for a story in today’s Green Bay Press-Gazette. UW-Green Bay is making enrollment verification available online, Koepke said, and the University will issue new student IDs that meet the requirements at no cost for students who request them. The SGA is working to get the word out to students, he added. Full story.
And speaking of voter ID, new System website will help students comply
The UW System on Thursday (Sept. 18) announced the launch of a new website designed to help students understand and comply with the new state voting regulations. The site, www.wisconsin.edu/voting/, includes basic information about voting, links to UW voting documents, information from the Government Accountability Board (GAB) and more. The site provides detailed information but may not address every voting situation a student may face. Those with questions can contact the GAB at http://gab.wi.gov, their local municipal clerk (information available on the GAB website) or their local Student Affairs office.
