SVRS (version 8.1) was installed on Thursday, January 26, 2012.  The SVRS now contains features required by Wisconsin Act 23, the Voter Photo ID Law.

  •  Three new fields were added to the voter record to track Photo IDs provided with mail-in absentee request, voters exempt from showing Photo ID, and voters exempt from signing the poll book.
  •  The Poll Book has been modified to accommodate the signature requirements for voters.  The overall Poll     Book design has been fine-tuned based upon the recommendations made by clerks.
  •  The Voter Redistrict Trifold Mailing is available for clerks to use to notify voters of  new districts or polling places.
  •  The Listing for Redistricting Report has been added to provide lists of district changes and polling place changes.
