Tuesday is the spring election throughout the state and voters are now required to have some form of ID to be able to vote. The most commonly used form of identification is a Wisconsin driver license. Voters looking to get their first Wisconsin ID should visit the Department of Motor Vehicle website for an overview. There are documentation requirements, such as a birth certificate, proof of identity and Wisconsin residency, necessary to get an official Wisconsin ID card. An ID Petition Process can be used to obtain a receipt valid for voting while the remaining documents are obtained, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. The service and ID card for voting purposes is offered free of charge. The polls will open Tuesday morning at 7 am and close at 8 pm throughout the state.
