Completing the voter registration process is necessary for first-time voters, or for anyone whose name and/or address have changed. When registering, you will need to prove you live at the address through a “Proof of Residence” document or ID. You may use any acceptable photo ID to meet the proof of residence requirement, as long as that ID contains your name and current address.
If your photo ID does not have your address on it, or the address is not current on your ID, you will need an additional PROOF of RESIDENCE document that contains your name and current address.
Beginning with the 2016 Spring Primary, all Wisconsin voters must show an acceptable photo ID before they can be issued a ballot to vote.

These photo ID’s are also acceptable for voting purposes, but must be unexpired:
The paper-based ExpressVote Universal Voting System uses touch-screen technology that produces a paper record for tabulation. As a marker, the ExpressVote handles the entire marking process, eliminating unclear marks and the need for interpretation of the voter’s mark. When a voter has finished casting their vote, they review their ballot for accuracy and then the machine will print their marked ballot card which can then be placed in the tabulator or ballot box.
