DeSales University ID Card and the Upcoming Election

On Wednesday, March 14, 2012, Governor Tom Corbett signed into law House Bill 934, also known as the Voter Photo ID Bill, which will require Pennsylvanians to produce photo identification to vote in state elections.  The law defines acceptable forms of photo identification which include, among other things, identification issued by, “…an accredited Pennsylvania public or private institution of higher learning…”.  The law also requires the identification card contain the voter’s name, photo, and an expiration date.

Currently, the DeSales University ID card does not include a printed expiration date.  If any student wishes to use the DeSales University ID card for the upcoming election, they may visit the card office to receive a compliant version which includes a printed expiration date.  As an exercise of the University’s civic duty and as a convenience to our students this service will be offered free of charge.  Please note the voter compliant card will not be activated for use with dining, building access, library, or any other campus functions.

The University card office is open Monday thru Friday from 9:00AM – 5:00PM.

For more information regarding the new law, please visit www.votespa.com .
