IDville recommends creating voter IDs that are versatile
ID cards allow more citizens to vote in the upcoming election.
Grand Rapids, MI - With Election Day being three weeks away, it's imperative that voter ID laws have been finalized and a plan is in
place for citizens to be eligible to vote. States such as New Hampshire and Pennsylvania have worked with the new voter ID law and have plans
in place to encourage voting and ensure a smooth process come November 6th.
In order to be eligible to vote, you must hold an ID that bears a photograph and an expiration date. Many students and citizens do not hold
such an ID which would ultimately make them ineligible to vote. Several of Pennsylvania's academic institutions have done a great job of encouraging
students to vote by issuing new identification cards or stickers that hold expiration dates.
"Penn State quickly took action to add expiration dates to ID cards for incoming students beginning with the past summer term, and making
university issued stickers available for returning students, to insure all Penn State students are able to vote," the Secretary of State said
at a news conference.
Voucher systems enable more citizens to have the ability to vote. Officials in New Hampshire are preparing for the election by ensuring that
all goes smoothly with the new voter ID law. Those that are eligible to vote but don't have the appropriate form of identification are now able
to pick up a voucher that enables them to acquire a complimentary voter ID card.
"This is an opportunity for those voters whose names appear on the checklist but do not otherwise have an acceptable form of photo ID to be
able to obtain one at no charge from the state of New Hampshire," Deputy Attorney General David Scanlan said while announcing the voucher program.
IDville, the leading identification and security experts for business, education, healthcare, and
government, recommends that states and schools that want to partake in offering voter ID cards make them versatile.
- Onsite ID printer: Having an ID Maker system or printer onsite will reduce the amount of time and money it takes to create and print a
new photo ID.
- Combine with current employee/student ID cards: If you don't have the capabilities to print your own ID cards, implement a sticker with
an expiration date to current employee/student ID cards.
- Provide accessories: Badge holders, badge reels, and lanyards are great accessories to prevent the daily wear and tear of an ID card.
"This election year is unique in that so many states have passed voter identification laws and are taking steps to enforce them. It's important
that IDs are easy to obtain, use, and wear for these programs to be effective," comments Kelli, IDville's Marketing Manager.
