Photo ID

Wisconsin now requires a photo ID to vote. Visit bringit.wi.gov to check if you have the correct type of ID. If you do not, UW-River Falls provides Voter ID cards to students. Visit our Voter ID knowledge base to learn more.  

Wisconsin Voter Registration

If this is your first time voting in Wisconsin, you will need to register and can do so in multiple ways. Check the Voter Registration Guide to review your options. If you are unsure if you are registered, check the Voter Search Database.

All UWRF students who reside in River Falls, on or off campus, can establish residency and register to vote in River Falls. If you are establishing residency in River Falls for the first time, you can print out a Wisconsin Voter Verification form from eSIS (bottom right corner, under "Resources" – be sure your home address is showing up as your River Falls address before printing the form). You will use that form, along with a valid photo ID, to register to vote. For further information about residency for students, visit http://www.gab.wi.gov/voters/students.
