Photo ID Required to Vote
You must bring photo identification to vote! Some examples of acceptable Photo IDs include a Wisconsin Driver License, Wisconsin State ID, Wisconsin Driver or State ID receipt, Veteran Health Card ID, U.S. Passport or Card, U.S. Uniformed Services ID, Tribal ID, Certificate of Naturalization, University or College ID that is voter ID compliant. University or College students who do not have an acceptable form of photo identification for voting purposes can contact their school administration to obtain a voting compliant ID card.

In-person voters must sign the poll book to obtain a ballot. The poll book contains a signature block for each voter. Only one poll book needs to be signed. Voters unable to sign the poll book because of a physical disability are exempt from the requirement. If this applies to you, tell the election officials that you are unable to sign because of a disability. Election officials will write “Exempt” in your signature block.
Voters with mobility issues who are unable to enter the voting location may vote from the curb of their polling place.
Please note that there are exceptions for military voters and indefinitely confined electors.
Our goal is for all eligible voters to be able to cast a ballot and have that ballot counted.
Polls are open from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM on election days.
Voting is conducted at the Ridgeway Fire Station, 113 Dougherty Court, Ridgeway.
Please contact the Clerk’s Office at 608-924-5881 or via email with any questions or for more information.
