What About My College ID?

Some laws would prohibit students from using their college IDs to vote because they don’t show a local address. Many students vote in the state where they attend school and many don’t have a valid ID from that state. They would be required to get a state-issued ID well before primary day or Election Day. So far, laws in Wisconsin, Texas, South Carolina and Tennessee ban the use of student IDs.
