  • At a meeting with Wisconsin clerks on February 7, 2011, Government Accountability Board staff was asked to provide guidance regarding presentation of photo ID at the polling place during the February 15 Spring Primary.  The Wisconsin Legislature is considering bills to require photo ID, and there has been much publicity about the issue.  However, nothing has yet been passed or signed into law.
  • Clerks and staff together developed the attached signage, which clerks may print and distribute to polling places.
  • This signage may be helpful for clerks in the event there is confusion about whether photo ID is required.
  • There are two versions of the sign.  One is a full page.  The other contains two signs per page if clerks wish to save printing costs.
