Gettysburg was mentioned in a September 19 article in the Patriot-News about colleges pushing to get students proper voter IDs in time for the upcoming election.
From the Patriot-News:
The Pennsylvania Public Interest Research Group said Wednesday that 141 of 156 schools contacted in a recent survey already issue student ID cards that meet the law’s requirements for a photo ID, or are taking steps that will get them there by Election Day.
Specifically, the schools are adding expiration date, which along with a photograph is a must for an ID to be accepted at the polls.
According to the report, more than a half-million college students in Pennsylvania have access to school identification cards that meet the law’s requirements. At least another 28,000, the survey said, will be forced to use driver’s licenses or other types of ID.
Included among the schools cited for designing new IDs or producing expiration date stickers that will make existing cards compliant are Central Penn, Dickinson, Elizabethtown, Franklin & Marshall, Gettysburg, Lebanon Valley and Messiah colleges.
