Due to the heavy rains received overnight in Racine County, the Sheriff’s Office has closed several roads because of unsafe and/or impassable.  There will be signage and/or a Sheriff’s deputy at these locations to deter traffic to an alternate route.   Many other roads and highways throughout the county have standing water and motorists are asked to be extremely cautious in those areas.  There may be more roads closed throughout the day if the rain continues.

  New WI Voter Photo ID Rules – Major Changes

We would like to urge all voters in the Town of Waterford to plan now to make sure they have the acceptable photo ID needed to vote in all elections.

 Most voters already have one of the types of photo ID required to vote. 

Election Day

On Election Day, voters must provide one of the following photo IDs before they can cast a ballot.  The following IDs are still valid if expired, if they have expired since November 8, 2016:

            -Wisconsin Driver License
            -Wisconsin State ID Card
            -Military ID Card
            -U.S. Passport Book or Card

The following forms of photo ID are also acceptable:

-A Certificate of Naturalization, within 2 years of issuance
-Driver License Receipt issued by the WI DOT, within 45 days of issuance
-ID issued by a federally recognized Wisconsin Indian Tribe (Can still be used if expired)

-Veterans Affairs ID Card (must be unexpired or have no expiration)
-A photo ID issued by a Wisconsin accredited university or college, or technical college along with an enrollment verification document. The card must show the voter’s name, signature, photo, the date the card was issued, and the date the card expires.  The issued date cannot be more than two years from the expiration date.  The card may still be used to vote even if it is expired.

 An acceptable photo ID is not required to include a current address.

If you do not have a valid WI Driver’s License or WI State ID you can receive a free WI State ID from your local DMV if you specifically request a free ID for voting purposes.  If you don’t have documentation, like a birth certificate, you can still get a free ID for voting after one visit to the DMV using their petition process. Please contact your local DMV or your Local Clerk for more information.

Absentee Voting

During in-person absentee voting, voters must present photo ID just like on Election Day.
In the Town of Waterford, in-person absentee voting will begin: TBD

Voters are also encouraged to visit the Wisconsin Elections Commission’s Photo ID website for information about the new law.
