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.

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, pay stub, mortgage)
  • 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.
