Several groups around Wisconsin are making sure voters are prepared to head to the polls for the first Presidential election where proper identification is required. Issues including colleges with inadequate identification cards for its students and others running into inconsistent communication regarding temporary voting receipts at local DMV offices have provided hurdles for many wanting to vote November 8. Jay Heck from Common Cause Wisconsin says people should start making sure they have everything squared away before they go to the polls.



Eligible voters must have one of nine different photo identification cards to participate, such as a passport, driver’s license, or military ID.  According to Common Cause Wisconsin, only three University of Wisconsin schools and seven of the state’s private colleges have photo identification cards appropriate for voting.
