Voting and Citizenship Responsibilities

The University encourages all students to take seriously their responsibility, as citizens, to vote. Voter registration information is available online at www.voterreg.org.

It takes only minutes to register. Registered voters in the state of Pennsylvania are required to show a photo identification at their designated polling location in order to vote (i.e. – a driver’s license).

In order to use a student identification card there needs to be a validation date on it. A typical Wilkes ID does not have a validation date; however, if a student does not have an alternative form of photo identification for voting purposes he/she may request that a new Wilkes ID be created with a validation date. This request should be made at the Office of Public Safety.

Any questions about voter registration may be directed to the Office of Student Affairs.
