Voter Photo ID Information

Update: The U.S. Supreme Court has affirmed the photo ID provisions of the 2011 Wisconsin Act 23.  A photo ID is now required to receive a ballot in all special and regular elections.. Learn more about photo ID and voting here, and visit the Bring It to the Ballot website.

Wisconsin law requires voters to show an acceptable photo ID to vote.  An acceptable photo ID will be required before receiving a ballot.

Acceptable IDs and detailed information about the voter photo ID law can be found on the Wisconsin Elections Commission website.
