Purdue updating student IDs to comply with lawJuly 24, 2019
By The Associated Press
WEST LAFAYETTE — Purdue University will start issuing new student identification cards with a change aimed at ensuring that the cards comply with Indiana law.
The university announced Tuesday that new ID cards will be available in August with an expiration date six years from the day a card is issued.
That information wasn't on Purdue's previous student IDs, but The Journal & Courier reports that it's required under Indiana's voter ID law that took effect in 2008.
Tippecanoe County's election board had determined that using Purdue records to check whether students are currently enrolled met Indiana's voter ID requirements.
But in May, county Clerk Julie Roush questioned whether the county's arrangement with Purdue truly complied with the law.
Roush said Tuesday she's grateful Purdue was working with the county on a solution.
