There's good news for the tens of thousands of Pennsylvania college students who want to vote in the general election.

State officials announced on Wednesday that more than 90 percent of 156 schools have identification cards that are compliant with the new voter ID laws.

But, as the Pennsylvania Public Interest Research Group points out, some students will still be left out.

"Over 28,500 at 15 college campuses in Pennsylvania will not be able to use their student IDs to vote in the general election," said ," said Angela Lee of PennPIRG.

To make sure your student ID is acceptable, it should have an expiration date. For example, Temple issued special stickers to students.

Meanwhile, a lower Pennsylvania court has until October 2nd to issue a ruling on the voter ID law.
