It's not too late to get a photo ID for voting

MILWAUKEE -- Officials want to remind you that even if you wait until the last minute Tuesday, you can get a free state ID to vote in the primary.

All you have to do is go to the DMV and check the box that says you need it to vote.

"If you go [Tuesday] to the DMV and get your state ID card, they will give you a receipt...which will have your photo on it, you can use that to vote," said Milwaukee County Clerk Joe Czarnezki.

Your picture and signature will be on the receipt for you to be able to vote right away.

The Milwaukee County Clerk expects voter turnout to be low. He says voter turnout could reach up to 20 percent in Milwaukee County, thanks to the Milwaukee mayoral race. Statewide is expected to be about 10 percent.
