Support Students At The Polls
Students face unique barriers to voting. One such barrier is the requirement to bring an accepted form of ID to cast a ballot.
The reason for this is that some states do not allow student IDs as an accepted form of voter ID at the polls.
Texas is one such state. Texas is one of just a handful of states that does not accept a student ID under the terms of its current voter ID law.
But worth knowing:
Student IDs are given to nearly every college student after providing proof of their identity upon enrollment. They are convenient and secure options that should be acceptable voter ID.
SB 165 in the Texas Senate aims to establish same day voter registration (vote by provisional ballot) and make student IDs a valid form of ID to present when students go vote.
