Important things to know about Voter ID (from the Government Accountability Board)

  • There is no such thing as a "Wisconsin Voter ID Card."  The new Voter Photo ID Law uses existing photo IDs for people to prove their identity before voting.
  • The address on your ID doesn’t have to be current. And the name on your ID doesn’t need to be an exact match for your name in the poll book. (So, Richards who go by Rich, Bobs who are also Roberts and Susans with IDs for Sue can all relax.)
  • Of course, there are certain requirements. Your ID should look like you.  Even if you’ve colored your hair, shaved your beard or lost some weight, as long as your photo ID reasonably resembles you, it should be accepted.
