SCOTUS Blocks Implementation of Voter ID!!!

The US Supreme Court vacated the decision of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals panel that approved Wisconsin's Voter ID law, pending further proceedings. Great news!

Voter ID will not be in place for the November election!

For more information, see the SCOTUS Blog, GAB website, the Wisconsin State Journal, or your favorite news outlet.

Election Help

Do you want to help with elections?

  • Become a Special Registration Deputy (Register voters, City of Madison only).
  • Become a Madison Pollworker (you do not have to be a Madison resident).
  • Be an election observer with the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin.
  • Although the US Supreme Court blocked implementation of the Voter ID law for the November 4th election, it may ultimately be ruled constitutional. Ask your friends and relatives if they have proper Photo Voter ID. If not, be sure they know they do not need it to vote in this election, but help them get it at the DMV in case it is needed in the future. See our Voting Information for details.
