Campus Cards, College and University Identification and Security

Wisconsin university offering free voter ID cards

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

With many states requiring voter ID cards, and if you’re a student, proof of enrollment, some colleges are offering students free cards that will enable them to vote.

Case in point is the University of Wisconsin-Stout. The university is offering students a voter ID card, good for two years, that includes the student’s photo, address and a university logo.


Wisconsin’s new voter identification law requires a photo ID, such as a driver license, and proof of enrollment.

Since more than half of the university’s 9,300 students live out of state, which means they don’t have a Wisconsin driver license, they would need the university-provided photo ID in order to vote.

For proof of enrollment, they need to log onto their student account and download a form that verifies enrollment. [end]
