Voter Photo ID

Voter photo ID – arguably the most dangerous of the many voter suppression measures passed and enacted into law in Wisconsin in recent years – was fully implemented for the first time in 2016. At the same time, an estimated 300,000 eligible Wisconsin voters lack one of the acceptable forms of ID for voting – most are disproportionately young voters, seniors, and people of color. 

Common Cause Wisconsin provides voter ID education, research and support to help ensure that all eligible voters can make their voices heard at the ballot box.

Wisconsin voter ID fact sheets Working closely with coalition partners, CC/WI has developed voter ID education materials that have been used statewide.

Our research on the acceptability of student IDs as voter ID at every college, university and technical school in Wisconsin cited in state and national media, and is a vital resource for college students and advocacy organizations across the state.

We continue to do outreach to citizens, colleges and universities, senior centers and advocacy groups to educate citizens about Wisconsin's voter photo ID requirement – and to ensure that all eligible voters have the photo ID they need to cast a ballot.
