This semester, we have been working on taking actions to increase voter accessibility on LSU’s campus, in the hopes that LSU can be a catalyst for the rest of the state. We are proposing two things: 1) a polling place at a centralized location on campus and 2) a signature on LSU’s student ID to make it legal voting identification.
HB 940 by State Representative Randall Gaines is currently under consideration in the Louisiana Legislature. This bill requires that universities comply with Louisiana regulations to ensure that students at Louisiana public universities can use their student IDs to vote. Geaux Vote LSU is in full support of this legislation. We encourage all LSU students to suppport this legislation, as it will provide greater access to the polls for Louisiana college students.
Sign the petition in support of this legislation.
