The Wisconsin 2018 partisan primary is weeks away. Do you have identification that is valid for voting?
Most people already have valid identification for voting purposes (driver’s license, identification card, military or student ID card, passport, etc.), according to a Wisconsin Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles news release.
For those who don’t, the DMV offers free Wisconsin IDs and it has a process, called Voter ID Petition Process, if the required documents needed for an ID are not readily available. This process, available for free, can be used to quickly obtain a receipt valid to take to the polls for voting while the remaining documents or verifications are obtained. A list of the required documents is available at wisconsindmv.gov.
Anyone unsure if their identification meets the requirements should visit the Wisconsin Elections Commission website to check.
Anyone with questions related to obtaining an ID to vote should call DMV’s Voter ID hotline at 844-588-1069. Any questions about voter eligibility, poll locations, voter registration information or other election information should visit http://elections.wi.gov/.
