    School Sends Blank Utility Bills To Help Students Vote

    Friday, Feb 29, 2008 - 03:20 PM

    By Associated Press
    OBERLIN, Ohio -- Oberlin College has come up with a creative way for students from out of state to show they reside in Ohio, so they can vote.

    The college in northern Ohio is sending out dummy utility bills to dorm residents. There are no charges for students to pay for their phone and high-speed Internet connections, but there's a bold-faced note at the bottom saying the statement can serve as proof of ID at a polling place.

    The arrangement got a blessing from the state's top election official.

    Colin Koffel from Madison, Wis., says he and other out-of-state students at Oberlin were frustrated when the state's new voter ID requirements took effect in 2006. But he says they can now register to vote and go to the polls without jumping through complex hoops.
