Congratulations are in order.
Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele today commended Pennsylvania State University for making its student IDs acceptable for voting under the state’s new voter ID law.
Every Penn State ID card issued since May 7 includes an expiration date. Cards issued before then do not have an expiration date, but the university is offering to place stickers with expiration dates onto existing IDs.
The stickers are being issued on all campuses until the Nov. 6 election. At Penn State Behrend, they are available at the Housing & Food Services office in Senat Hall.
Students also can vote by showing a Pennsylvania driver’s license, a U.S. passport, a U.S. military ID and some other accepted forms of identification.
Of course, it could all be moot, if a Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court judge blocks the controversial new law that could shut out some voters.
Judge Robert E. Simpson Jr. raised that possibility Tuesday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
