DMV extends hours to make it easier for Wisconsin voters to get ID for primary election

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) announced it will extend customer service hours Monday, Aug. 8 and Tuesday, Aug. 9 to make it easier for voters to get a photo ID before Tuesday's primary. 

The centers that are open will stay open until 6 p.m. 

Anyone who still needs a photo ID can get one for free at DMV centers. 

Steps to obtain an ID to vote

Anyone without the required identification to vote may obtain an ID free from the DMV. Voters looking to get their first Wisconsin ID should begin at DMV’s website

Next, bring the required documents to apply at your nearest DMV. Certain documents, such as a birth certificate, proof of identity and Wisconsin residency, are necessary to obtain an official Wisconsin ID card. If all documentation is not readily available, the ID Petition Process (IDPP) may be used to obtain a receipt valid for voting while the remaining documents or verifications are obtained. The voter should bring any documentation available to the DMV and complete the required application.

Finally, a receipt valid for voting purposes will be provided and may be used to show at the polls.
