Milwaukee DMV has added Saturday hours ahead of the presidential election to be accessible to the public.

The city of Milwaukee has six Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Customer Service Centers and three will offer Saturday hours throughout October.

“DMV’s effort to safely open more service centers in convenient locations is critically important for ensuring Wisconsinites can get what they need even during these challenging times,” Gov. Tony Evers said. “By ensuring we have more DMV locations that are close and easily accessible to mass transit, we’re also ensuring folks can get essential identification they need to vote and work.”

The Milwaukee DMV Saturday hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Mill Road, Grange Avenue and N. 6th Street locations.

In Wisconsin, voters are required to have a valid photo ID, which can be obtained from the DMV.

Wis. voters still have time to request a photo ID needed to vote in the upcoming election

The Milwaukee Downtown location has also added Wednesdays and Saturdays in October.

It is now open to the public on Wednesdays throughout October, from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., as well as Saturdays.

“It’s important to ensure DMV services are available in the heart of Milwaukee and throughout the state,” WisDOT Secretary-designee Craig Thompson said. “While many of our services can be completed online, walk-in sites located along mass transit routes are important to customers who may not have access to a computer or the internet. The downtown DMV in Milwaukee is within walking distance for many and accessible by several bus routes.”
