Election season is almost in full swing. Are you prepared to vote?

To vote in Wisconsin, you will need a form of photo ID. According to the Wisconsin Elections Commission, a driver's license, state ID card, military ID, U.S. passport, or tribal ID are acceptable.

If you don't have a photo ID, you can request a free state ID. To get one, head to your nearest DMV and make sure you have proof of identity, proof of citizenship or legal status, proof of Wisconsin residency, and proof of name and date of birth.

Anyone with questions related to obtaining an ID to vote should call DMV’s toll-free Voter ID hotline at (844) 588-1069.
