Among the valid forms of identification to vote, driver licenses and IDs most common
If you don’t have an ID to vote, start the process now
With seven weeks until the presidential election, the Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) encourages the public to check and ensure that they have the proper identification needed to vote.
Current Wisconsin driver licenses or IDs are valid to vote. These cards show the iconic sun/sailboat/barn, the word “WISCONSIN” in a font reminiscent of our famous Prairie Style, or the new card featuring photos in black and white. There is no such thing as a separate “Wisconsin Voter ID Card.” If you’re looking to get your first Wisconsin ID, DMV can help.
Those individuals without one of these identification cards may visit a local DMV customer service center to obtain identification, free of charge, that is valid for voting. Start here. To obtain an official ID card, there are documentation requirements such as a birth certificate, but if all documentation is not readily available, the ID Petition Process can be used to obtain a receipt valid for voting while the remaining documents or verifications are obtained.
Avoid the last minute rush, and get started on obtaining your free identification today.
