Wisconsin voters are required to have a photo identification card when they arrive at the polls. But those who don’t have a driver’s license or other photo ID can still cast their ballots. You can apply for a state-issued ID at a Department of Motor Vehicles office on Election Day. You’ll need a birth certificate or other proof of identity and proof of Wisconsin residency. While you won’t get a picture ID right away, DMV Administrator Kristina Boardman says your application will buy you some time.
Boardman says the D-M-V initially issued picture ID’s for voting at DMV office. Now all ID’s are mailed to applicants.
