Saturday hours at select DMV service centers also serve voters looking for an ID

September 30, 2016

Wisconsin Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) service centers continue to offer Saturday hours at their busiest locations: Milwaukee Northwest, Milwaukee Southwest, Madison East, Madison Odana, La Crosse, Eau Claire, Wausau and Appleton. These DMV service centers are open Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Convenient Saturday hours have been in place since January 9, 2016. The DMV’s website has a locator to find the nearest DMV and check wait times.


As the countdown to the presidential election continues, voters looking to get their first Wisconsin ID can turn to DMV for help. Start here. To obtain an official photo ID card, some documentation is required, such as a birth certificate. If all documentation is not readily available, the ID Petition Process can be used to obtain a receipt valid for voting while the remaining documents or verifications are obtained. DMV offers this service and card free of charge for voting purposes. Start today.


Most people already have a driver license or ID and, therefore, already have a form of required identification needed to vote. For customers who need a duplicate card or simply want to update their address on their records, offers convenient online tools. Other routine DMV-related tasks such as renewing an ID, titling a vehicle, renewing license plates, and more can be done online 24/7. During regular weekday business hours (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) online chat or phone support are available to answer questions.


Only the website with .gov is the official state website. Others with .org and .com are not official and may have extra charges for forms or list information that is dated or incorrect. In addition to the expanding services on its website, WisDOT connects with customers on Facebook and Twitter @WisconsinDOT.
