Voting Guide

Voting is both a right and a responsibility for an engaged citizen. UW-Baraboo/Sauk County encourages everyone to exercise the right to vote.

A photo ID will be required at the polls for upcoming elections. Most UW-Baraboo/Sauk County students will still be able to use a Wisconsin driver’s license or State of Wisconsin ID, which already meet voter ID requirements.

Free Voter ID cards can be obtained by UW-Baraboo/Sauk County students at the Student Affairs/Solution Center office.

For complete information on voting as a student please check out the University of Wisconsin System Voting Guide.
