State Elections Board goes for compromise on driver's license requirement

Email

MADISON -- Those who show up at Wisconsin polls expecting to register the same day they vote will have to provide the number on their drivers' license.

If they don't have a valid license, they do have other options that will allow them to vote.

That decision was made by the state Elections Board. It's a compromise intended to prevent a possible federal lawsuit under the Help America Vote Act.
