Using a College ID as Voter ID

Most students already have a Wisconsin driver license or one of the other acceptable forms of photo ID for voting.

Students who do not have one of the other forms of acceptable ID for voting
should look up their college/university on the appropriate list linked below to see if their student ID can be used as a voter ID or if their school offers a special photo ID card for voting and how to get it:


University of WI – 4-Year Schools

University of WI – 2-Year Schools

WI Private Universities & Colleges

WI Technical Colleges
