|Memo to Clerks re Voter Initiated Photo ID Requirement.pdf||37.75 KB|
The Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.) has received inquiries regarding an optional “Photo ID” requirement at the request of any elector.
Currently, the law does not authorize nor require optional voter identification for each and every election, once an elector is properly registered.
As such, the “ID Required” notation on poll lists is restricted to those electors that may be subject to Sec. 6.34(2), Wis. Stats., and no others. To use it in any other fashion is a violation of State statues and G.A.B. policy and therefore, expressly prohibited.
Please consult the full memo, attached below.
