Wisconsin Voter ID Requirements


If you are registering to vote AND you have a Wisconsin driver license or state ID, you are required to provide the license or ID number on the application form. If the driver license or state ID card has your current address, you may use it to provide proof of residence.

Acceptable forms of proof of residence includes any one of the following (submit a copy if you mail your registration): a current and valid Wisconsin driver’s license; a current and valid Wisconsin I.D. card; any other official I.D. card or license issued by a Wisconsin governmental body or unit; any employer-issued photo I.D. card, issued in the normal course of business, but not including a business card; a university, college or technical college fee card or I.D. card with your photo and current address (May be used even if the card does not contain the cardholder’s address, if the educational institution provides a certified student list for use at the polling place); a utility bill (e.g., gas, electric, cable TV or telephone) for the period commencing not earlier than 90 days before election day;a bank statement; a real estate (i.e., property) tax bill or receipt for the current year or the year preceding the date of the election; a pay check or a government check or other document issued by unit of government.

American Crossroads uses the most up-to-date information available, but all absentee voters are encouraged to check with their local clerk or their Secretary of State to confirm their absentee voting requirements before they submit an absentee voting registration so that they do not have any difficulties casting their ballot.
