Free Voter IDs for Students

January 24th, 2012

Don’t miss an opportunity to exercise your right to vote! Given recent changes in state law that affect voter identification and registration, UW-Madison students who intend to vote and do not otherwise have Wisconsin state identification will be issued a free, supplemental ID for voting purposes. A student needing this card can obtain one from the Wiscard Office at Union South by presenting his/her Wiscard.

Do note that students who are Wisconsin residents and have a state-issued driver’s license, identification card, US passport, or US military ID will not require this supplemental identification and will be able to register and to vote using these other forms of identification.

Consult the campus Voter Information site for more information regarding eligibility, registration, and polling locations.

See the campus press release regarding Voter IDs.
