While most voters already have a photo ID to vote, like a driver license or state ID card, those who do not and want to vote Nov. 8 should bring what identifying documents they have to a DMV to begin the process.
DMV has developed an online application to guide ID applicants through the application process. This free online service allows them to complete and submit an application online, as well as receive a checklist of all documentation required when visiting a DMV service center.
For people who do not have all documents required to obtain a Wisconsin ID card, a petition process is available.
People who make use of this process are eligible to receive temporary identification card receipts that serve as a valid ID for voting. For those who apply during an election week, DMV will issue a photo ID receipt by overnight mail on the day that a person makes an application.
