Welcome to Voter Service Central!

 

 

If you were a Special Registration Deputy (SRD), your certification has probably expired. Beginning January 9, 2017, you can assist voters with voter registration using the new Online Voter Registration (OVR) system linked to MyVote. The Wisconsin Elections Commission has created this video to help form SRDs learn to use the new OVR system to assist voters. We encourage you all to watch this video.

Voter Photo ID Resource Information

Wisconsin state law requires voters to provide a voter photo ID to receive a ballot on election day or to vote absentee. The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) provides extensive information on this topic on its website, including descriptions of documents that are acceptable as voter photo IDs.  For voters who do not currently have an acceptable voter photo ID, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website provides detailed information about how to obtain a free voter photo ID for voting purposes. Seniors who have given up their driver's license can get a non-expiring Wisconsin ID for voting.

NOTE: Many of these documents need to be updated for 2017. Specifically, photo IDs noted here as needing to have expired after November 4, 2014, will need to have expired after November 8, 2016.

Proof of Residence Resource Information 

Wisconsin state law requires all voters to provide proof of residence to register to vote.  The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) provides information on its website on this topic. 

Other Helpful Resources for Assisting Voters

League Pamphlet, Making It Clear

Making It Clear is a tool for community members helping citizens navigate requirements for registering and voting in Wisconsin. It clarifies many of the ambiguities surrounding proof of residence and voter photo IDs. Developed by Marian Matthews and other LWVDC members. This document has not been updated for 2017 elections (dates, name of GAB, elimination of SRDs, addition of OVR).
