How to get an ID to vote in the Wisconsin 2018 fall election
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- People voting in the election in November can get a free ID to use at the polls.
Most people already have an ID like a driver's license or a military ID, but the DMV has a voter ID petition process if documents needed to get a valid ID aren't available before the election.
People will get a receipt to take to the polls for voting.
To get a free ID from the DMV:
- Go to the DMV to apply
- Bring the following, if available:
- Proof of Name and Date of Birth (such as Birth Certificate)
- Proof of Identity(Social Security Card, Medicaid/Medicare Card, etc.)
- Wisconsin Residency(Utility bill, government mail, lease, etc.)
- Proof of U.S. Citizenship(U.S. Birth certificate or citizenship paperwork)
- Social Security Number
Those with questions can also call the voter ID hotline at (844) 588-1069.
