City Clerk: No ID Required For Voters

Wisconsin voters will not be required to present a photo ID card before voting on Tuesday even though there is a voter ID bill being considered in the state Legislature.

Madison City Clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl stressed that rules for Election Day haven’t changed since the spring primary.

?You can use a utility bill,” Witzel-Behl said. “Or any government check or government document, paycheck, bank statement, or your driver?s license or ID card. But the important thing is that it has your name with your current address.”

The city clerk is predicting a 60 percent voter turnout because of the high number of absentee ballots that have been returned already.

Election Day is Tuesday, April 5. Polling places open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

Before heading to the polls, voters can verify their voter registration status, their polling location, and view a sample ballot online. All the necessary information is at the state of Wisconsin Voter Public Access website.

Madison residents can also vote early Monday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the City Clerk’s Office.
