Even though the next election is still months away, students heading off to school should double-check their college’s identification cards to make sure they are compliant with state law for voting. According to Common Cause Wisconsin, only 20 of the state’s universities and colleges have identification cards that fall under the standards, which could cause problems if students do not currently hold a valid driver’s license, passport, military ID, or other acceptable forms. Executive Director Jay Heck says with school just a couple weeks away, now is the time to make sure you have what you need for the polls.
The next major election will not be until spring 2018 when voters choose their Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, Court of Appeals Judge, and Circuit Court Judge.
