These are acceptable for voting purposes, and can be unexpired or expired after the date of the most recent general election (currently, the November 8, 2016 election):

  1.  A Wisconsin DOT-issued driver license, even if driving privileges are revoked or suspended
  2. A Wisconsin DOT-issued identification card.

  4. Military ID card issued by a U.S. uniformed service
  5. A U.S. passport
  6. An identification card issued by a federally recognized Indian tribe in Wisconsin (May be used even if expired before the most recent general election.)

A photo identification card issued by a Wisconsin accredited university or college that contains date of issuance, signature of student, and an expiration date no later than two years after date of issuance. Also, the university or college ID must be accompanied by a separate document that proves enrollment. (May be used even if expired before the most recent general election.)

These photo IDs are also acceptable for voting purposes, but must be unexpired:

  • There is no such thing as a “Wisconsin Voter ID Card.”  The new Voter Photo ID Law uses existing photo IDs for people to prove their identity before voting.
  • The address on your ID doesn’t have to be current FOR VOTER ID PURPOSES ONLY.  IT NEEDS TO BE CURRENT TO MEET THE PROOF OF RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT.  (See proof of residency requirement below.) And the name on your ID doesn’t need to be an exact match for your name in the poll book. (So, Richards who go by Rich, Bobs who are also Roberts and Susans with IDs for Sue can all relax.)
  • Of course, there are certain requirements. Your ID should look like you.  Even if you’ve colored your hair, shaved your beard or lost some weight, as long as your photo ID reasonably resembles you, it should be accepted.
