Wisconsindmv.gov has been updated to better clarify the Identification Petition Card Process (IDPP) used to get a free ID for voting.

The website now includes a PDF of an information sheet (palm card) that clearly outlines what voters should do if they need an ID for voting. Anyone wanting to share that information is encouraged to print and distribute it as needed. A PDF of the take-away flyer which will be given to people using the IDPP has also been added to the website. It explains how the IDPP receipt will serve as an ID for voting and when it will arrive.

    In about a week, you will receive a
    Wisconsin ID or a paper receipt in the mail.
    Either one can be used as ID to vote.
    If you apply the week before the election or the week of the election
    (October 31st through November 10th), paper receipts will be sent via
    overnight mail, so you will receive it the day after you apply.
    The Wisconsin ID looks like a driver’s license. The paper receipt looks like this:
