If you are planning on voting in the local spring elections, there is one important thing that you need to do before voting day. All Wisconsin voting offices require a photo ID in order to receive a ballot. These IDs can include but are not limited to, a driver's license, identification card, military or student ID card. For the local elections, it is not required to have a separate “voter ID” or federally compliant REAL ID. If you do not have a photo ID the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is providing free identification cards that you can use while voting. If you are unsure if your type of identification is eligible for voting or you would like to see information on the upcoming elections click on this link.
