Election Day "Voter Protection"/Ride to the Polls/More

For Release: Tuesday - November 4, 2014

1. You do not need to bring an ID of any kind to the polls if you are currently registered to vote at your polling place! So do not let anyone tell you otherwise. Go vote!

2. Make sure you know where your polling place is. Perhaps the location has been moved since the last time you voted? Perhaps not. Go here to check and make sure!

3. Again, NO PHOTO ID IS NEEDED TO VOTE TODAY if you are currently registered to vote.

If you are not currently registered to vote, you can easily do so at your polling place. You will need to bring: a document – either hard copy or electronic (on your cellphone/tablet/laptop) – that proves you live within your voting district (e.g., a recent utility bill, bank statement, pay stub) and either the number and expiration date of your Wisconsin driver's license or Wisconsin DOT-issued ID card or the last four digits of your social security number (only if you don't have a WI license/ID card).

4. If you need a free ride to your polling place, CC/WI has compiled a statewide listing of who you can contact to help you get to your polling place.

5. If you arrive at the polls and are asked to show photo ID, encounter other problems or have questions, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

Election Protection’s highly-trained legal volunteers are available to assist voters with any questions or problems, no matter how simple or complex. Voters may call 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683) toll-free with any questions or issues that may arise. This English language hotline is available now and will be staffed live from 9AM– 8PM CST on Election Day. Spanish-speaking voters may seek assistance through the 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA (1-888-839-8682) hotline.

Go Vote!
