Student Political Activist Says College Vote Will Suffer With Voter ID
If the goal of a photo ID bill in Madison is to keep college students from voting, it should be pretty successful, according to a local college democrat. Jesse Campo is co-chair of UWL college democrats. He says, forcing students to have an official photo ID from the DMV when voting just adds hurdles to the whole voting process. He says, with the only area DMV in Onalaska, it will be a major challenge to get many students to get IDs ahead of an election.
A bill in Madison right now would mandate a photo ID to vote. An amendment to the bill would allow a student ID as long as there's an address on it.
