Early on-campus voting and new option for student voter I.D.

Read below for information about early on-campus voting and a new student voter I.D. option:

Students, check your I.D. 
You’re ready to vote if you have one of these forms of photo I.D.: a valid Wisconsin driver’s license, Wisconsin state I.D., U.S. passport, U.S. Uniformed Services card, Veterans Affairs I.D., tribal I.D. or Certificate of Naturalization. The address on your I.D. does not matter.

If you don’t have one of the above, you can now download and print the UW–Madison voting-compliant I.D.. This is the same I.D. that is provided by the Wiscard Office in Union South, now available virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit (Need a printer? Make an appointment on campus)

Remember, your Wiscard student I.D. cannot be used for voting. Visit for more info.

In-person, on-campus early voting starts Tuesday, Oct. 20 (see attached map)
City of Madison residents can complete the entire voting process, from registering to casting your ballot, in one visit at your choice of three convenient locations. Tents will be set up at Union South, Memorial Union and East Campus Mall outside the Student Activity Center from Oct. 20 through Oct. 30. Voting will take place 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

In the event of inclement weather, voting will take place inside Memorial Union; check @BadgersVote on Instagram and Twitter for updates.

If an off-campus location is more convenient, check out this list.

If you have a question about how to vote, call or text the Wisconsin voter helpline, (608) 285-2141. Visit for more info.
