WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Purdue Senate has asked the university to waive the fee for students to replace their school ID. 

The senate voted Monday afternoon in a measure aimed at encouraging students to vote. This is not a binding rule, but a request that the university could act on if it chooses. 

As we reported in July, the university made changes to its student ID's by adding an expiration date. This allows the new card to more likely be accepted by Indiana voting officials.

In the case of Tippecanoe County, students can use these ID's in the next election.

Audrey Ruple, a professor and the chair of Purdue Senate's Equity and Diversity Commitee, said she is proud of the way this resolution passed.

"I'm really encouraged by the way the vote went today," said Ruple. "The conversation was overhwlemingly supportive as was the vote, clearly."

The new resolution only applies to one replacement ID.
