DMV: It’s not too late to obtain ID for Tuesday’s Partisan Primary


MADISON, Wis. (WKBT) – The Wisconsin Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) can supply IDs for Wisconsin residents in time for the August 11 Partisan Primary.

There are documentation requirements, such as a birth certificate, proof of identity, and Wisconsin residency, to obtain an official Wisconsin ID card. If the documentation is not readily available, the ID Petition Process (IDPP) can be used to obtain a receipt valid for voting while the remaining documents or verifications are completed. The process is explained on the DMV’s webpage here. The DMV offers this IDPP service and ID card for voting purposes free of charge.

Voters looking to obtain an ID should bring any documentation available to the DMV and fill out two forms. A photo ID document that can be taken to the polls and used for voting, will be sent via overnight.

The DMV offers a toll-free voter ID hotline at 844-588-1069.

Questions regarding voter eligibility, poll locations, voter registration information, or other election information can be found on the Wisconsin Elections Commission website.
