Expiration Stickers Now Available for ID+ Cards

To comply with the new Pennsylvania Voter ID law, expiration date stickers for Penn State issued ID+ cards are now available for pickup so that the cards can be used as valid identification at the polls in November.

The new law, which disenfranchises thousands of student and minority voters, requires citizens to provide a valid form of identification in order to vote. The law was passed under the guise of cracking down on voter fraud, a problem which is essentially nonexistent, and will certainly help the Republicans in November as the majority of citizens without valid identification are minorities — a demographic which largely votes Democratic.

Previously, Penn State ID cards could not be used as a valid form of identification because they didn’t have an expiration date. However, every Penn State ID+ card issued since May 7th now includes an expiration date, which will allow them to be used at the polls.

Starting yesterday, students who already have ID cards can now obtain an expiration date sticker at the ID+ office in 103 HUB so that the card can be used to vote. According to the release, students who request a sticker will need to present their ID+ card and come prepared to affirm that they have no other form of valid ID for voting.
