Voting Guide

Note: On Oct. 9, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Wisconsin’s voter ID law from being enforced in the November 4, 2014 election. A photo ID will not be required at the polls.  This means that Wisconsin voters, including UW students, do NOT need to present photo identification to vote in the November 4, 2014, election.

Voting is both a right and a responsibility for an engaged citizen. UW-campus name encourages everyone to exercise the right to vote.
