A state official says most Wisconsin voters have some form of required ID needed to vote. But if you don't, you can get one before next Tuesday's partisan primary.

The administrator for the Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles Kristina Boardman says if you have a Wisconsin ID card or driver's license, you're all set to vote. She says if you're new to the state or haven't voted before, the DMV can get you what you need...

"We'd like people to come in as soon as they can so we can make sure they have what is needed to vote. It does require an in--person visit. Take your photo, we need to get a couple of applications from you..."

Boardman says you could produce a birth certificate, something with your photo or signature on it. She says a Social Security card, proof of state residence like a utility bill are also allowable documents. She says come into the DMV office even if you don't have all the documents...

"If you don't have all those items and some of that documentation is unavailable to you, still, come in, we'll have a couple applications for you. We want to make sure you have a receipt for voting while we work with you to get the documents that are needed...."

Voters can visit DMV’s website, wisconsin dmv dot .gov for information and a list of the documents that will be required.

Boardman says the DMV’s toll-free voter ID hotline is (844) 588-1069 and is available for questions on obtaining an ID to vote.

Questions regarding voter eligibility, poll locations, voter registration information or other election information can be directed to the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
