STUDENT ID

YES! Wisconsin accepts a photo ID issued by a Wisconsin accredited university, college, or technical college that includes:
  • The date the card was issued
  • The signature of the student
  • An expiration date no later than 2 years after date of issuance
  • A SEPARATE document that proves enrollment, such as a tuition fee receipt, enrollment verification letter, or class schedule
Registered Wyoming voters do not need to show ID at the polls to vote, except for some first-time voters.

If you did not provide the required info on your voter registration form, you may complete your registration by presenting photo or non-photo ID at the polls or with your absentee ballot.

Sometimes poll workers are confused and will ask for ID for voting. Voters may also be confused and believe that they cannot vote without ID.  VoteRiders can help with up-to-date resources and free assistance to help you with WY voter ID questions.
