Photo ID Required to Vote

How to Obtain an Identification Card to Vote

If you are eligible to vote in Wisconsin and do not currently hold a Wisconsin driver's license or Wisconsin identification card, you may obtain a FREE identification card from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). You will need to check a box on the application form indicating that the identification card is needed for voting.  http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/drivers/drivers/apply/idcard.htm

The DMV will require you to present the following documents in order to obtain the Wisconsin identification card required for voting:
  • Proof of name and date of birth (certified US birth certificate, valid passport, or certification of naturalization)
  • Proof of identity (Social Security card, military papers, marriage papers)
  • Proof of Wisconsin residency (utility bill, paystub, mortage)
  • Proof of US Citizenship
  • Social Security Number

If you do not have all of the required documents, there is a process to apply at the DMV for an ID card for voting.  That information can be found by clicking (here).
