A House subcommittee passed a measure Monday on voter identification. The bill would allow students who attend private universities in Georgia to use their student IDs to vote. Public university students have been able to use their student I-Ds to vote since 2005.
A photo ID issued by a college would be enough to prove a resident was eligible to vote under a bill being debated by Georgia lawmakers. State Rep. Alisha Morgan (D-Austell) has proposed adding student identification cards to the list of acceptable ID cards so long as they include a photo.
