 _____________________________________________
 
 
On the evening of October 9, the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated Judge Adelman's order blocking the enforcement of the voter ID requirements. This means that Wisconsin voters, including UW students, do need to present photo identification to vote in the November 4, 2014, election. However, the enrollment verification documents are still the only documents UW institutions provide for the purpose of assisting students to register to vote.  For more information about the Voter Photo ID Law, visit the Government Accountability Board website.
 
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point will continue to provide a voter ID free to students.  The voter ID does not replace the UW-Stevens Point student ID.  Students are not required to obtain this new card.  Go to the PointCard Office in the Dreyfus University Center, room 340, to obtain your UWSP Voter ID. Call 715-346-2012 or go to http://pointcard.uwsp.edu/ for office hours.
 
Voter Registration
 
If any of the following statements describe you, you need to register to vote before you can cast a ballot:
  • You have never registered to vote in Wisconsin.
  • Your address has changed since the last time you voted.
  • Your legal name has changed since the last time you voted.
To check your current voter registration status in Wisconsin, visit My Vote Wisconsin.
 
How to Register to Vote
 
1. By Mail 
Download the 
Voter Registration Application, complete the form and mail it to the City Clerk's Office (1515 Strongs Ave. Stevens Point). The application must be postmarked no later than the 20th day (3rd Wednesday) before the election. 

Please Note: State and federal law requires that any voter submitting a registration application by mail provide a copy of an acceptable identifying document that provides proof of residence. Please note that voters registering by mail may not use a residential lease as proof of residence. The copy of the form of proof of residence must be included when submitting the registration application. If a copy of proof of residence is not included, the elector will be required to supply it before being issued a ballot at the polling place or before being issued an absentee ballot in the City Clerk's office. 

2. In Person
Register in the City Clerk's office up to 5:00 PM or the close of business whichever is later on the Friday before the election.  An elector registering to vote in person in the clerk's office is required to present acceptable proof of residence as outlined below. 

3. At the Polling Place on Election Day
If you wish to register to vote at your polling place you must provide proof of residence, which includes a current utility bill, lease, or other official document showing your name and current address. A list of acceptable documents is available at http://gab.wi.gov. Before Election Day, you must have lived at your current address for at least 28 days to be eligible to vote, but the proof of residence document does not need to be 28 days old.
  
Photo ID
 
On the evening of October 9, the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated Judge Adelman's order blocking the enforcement of the voter ID requirements. This means that Wisconsin voters, including UW students, do need to present photo identification to vote in the November 4, 2014, election.
 
Enrollment Verification Letter
  
UWSP also has available, via your myPoint page, a Voter ID Enrollment Verification Letter that you may print out to provide you with proof of enrollment and/or to verify your address. This document may be used to verify your current, local address.
 
To access your UWSP Voter ID Enrollment Verification Letter, log on to your UWSP account.  First confirm that your mailing address reflects your local/current address while attending UW-Stevens Point. If it does not, go to your myPoint homepage and under myProfile choose the Change Local Address option and update your current local address.  Then on your myPoint page, go to the Academics tab and under Course Info you will find your Voter ID Enrollment Verification letter option.  Click on this link to generate and print your letter.
  
Proof of Residence (local address)
 
Proof of residence is always required to register to vote and documents must include the voter’s current address. The following items are acceptable to prove Wisconsin residency for voter registration purposes:
  • A current and valid Wisconsin driver license or identification card or any other official identification card or license issued by a Wisconsin governmental body or unit. NOTE: Your driver’s license must have your current, local address in order to qualify. If your driver’s license lists an address other than your current, local address, this item will not work as proof of residence.
  • The UWSP Voter ID Enrollment Letter, as long as it lists your current, local (mailing) address. (If necessary, before printing the document, be sure to update your mailing address on your myPoint page to reflect your local address).
  • Employer issued ID card with cardholder photo and your current address.
  • A real estate tax bill or receipt for the current year which shows your current address.
  • A recent (within 90 days of voter registration) gas, electric, or telephone service statement (utility bill) with current address.
