Make Sure Your Dragoncard ID is Valid

An Important Announcement About Drexel Dragoncard IDs

dragoncard validation examples

UPDATE: Voters will be asked, but not required, to show an acceptable photo ID on Election Day.  All photo IDs must contain an expiration date that is current, unless noted otherwise. Voter's names on their photo IDs do not need to exactly match their voter registration, but the names must substantially conform.

This year, Drexel students, faculty and professional staff will be able to use a valid DragonCard ID as a form of identification at the voting polls in the City of Philadelphia provided that it has a clear expiration date displayed on the front. Visit any one of the campus DragonCard offices to receive a 2013 validation sticker. The stickers are available now at any of the three DragonCard Office locations: 

NOTE: You do not need a validation sticker if the date printed on your DragonCard already states “2013.”

Additional Identification Options

In addition to student IDs, the following identification cards with expiration dates are being accepted for voting:

  • Pennsylvania driver’s license or a non-driver’s license (these IDs are valid for voting purposes 12 months past their expiration date).
  • Valid U.S. passport.
  • U.S. Military ID – active duty and retired. Military dependents’ ID must contain an expiration date. 
  • Employee photo ID issued by federal, state, county or municipal government.
  • Photo ID issued by a Pennsylvania care facility, including long-term care facilities, assisted living residences or personal care homes.

A voter who does not possess a photo ID on Election Day will be allowed to vote by provisional ballot. They would then need to produce the proper identification to the county election board within six days of the election to have the vote count.
