Notice: On Tuesday, March 6, 2012, in one of the two lawsuits in Dane County Circuit Court against the voter ID law, a Dane County judge ordered the Governor and the Government Accountability Board to "cease immediately any effort to enforce or implement the photo identification requirements" of the law. This means that at the present time it appears Wisconsin residents who are eligible to vote will not be required to produce photo identification at the upcoming election on April 3, 2012, and possibly elections thereafter. The judge's order is subject to appeal and UW institutions will continue to provide voter ID compliant student ID cards and enrollment verifications to students who request them. As further information becomes available, updates will be provided on this website.
Voting is both a right and a responsibility for an engaged citizen. The University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc encourages everyone to exercise the right to vote.
