City of Madison voters may vote absentee at Madison Public Library locations and Streets East beginning Monday, July 30.

In the August Primary, each political party narrows down its candidates for the November ballot. For this primary election, you may vote for candidates in only one political party of your choice. Wisconsin has run its fall primary elections this way since the early 1900s.

Voting in more than one political party without indicating a party preference invalidates your entire August ballot. To minimize the number of ballots invalidated by crossover votes, in-person absentee voters will mark their ballots using the ExpressVote ballot-marking device. The ExpressVote does not record any votes. It prints a paper ballot that is counted by the tabulator at your polling place on Election Day. The ExpressVote does not allow crossover voting.

Absentee voting locations will expand to include Union South, UW Memorial Union, and the UW-Madison Student Activity Center on Monday, August 6.­

*Voters on August 11 must be pre-registered.

You must present an acceptable form of photo ID before receiving an absentee ballot. The following types of ID are accepted under state law:

  • Wisconsin driver license expiring after November 8, 2016 (date of the last November election)
  • Wisconsin photo ID issued by the Department of Transportation expiring after November 8, 2016
  • U.S. passport (book or card) expiring after November 8, 2016
  • Military ID card expiring after November 8, 2016
  • Certificate of Naturalization issued within the last two years
  • Unexpired Wisconsin driver license or state ID card receipt
  • ID card issued by a federally recognized Indian tribe in Wisconsin
  • ID issued by a Wisconsin accredited university or college that contains an issuance date, a student signature, and an expiration date within two years of issuance; card must be accompanied by proof of current enrollment
  • Unexpired Veterans Affairs ID card

Out-of-state driver licenses, out-of-state ID cards, faculty ID cards, and high school ID cards are not acceptable forms of voter ID under Wisconsin law.

The address on your ID does not matter when proving your identity. The name on the ID, however, must reasonably conform to your name on the poll book.

When voting, it doesn’t matter if your ID complies with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005. If your Wisconsin ID says “not for federal purposes,” that has nothing to do with elections.

If you do not have an acceptable ID for voting, the Dane County Voter ID Coalition can help you apply for a free Wisconsin ID card. They can even set up a free cab ride to the DMV. The Dane County Voter ID Coalition hotline is 608-285-2141.
