The ID does not need to show a voter's current address. Whether the voter's address is up-to-date with the DMV is not relevant to proving identity at the polls.
The ID does not need to comply with the federal REAL ID Act. If a Wisconsin driver license/ID has a "not for federal purposes" notation, it is not referring to federal elections.
A driver license or state ID card from a state other than Wisconsin would not be acceptable under Wisconsin's voter ID law.
The Dane County Voter ID Coalition offers free help with the state ID application process, and even offers free cab rides to the DMV. The coalition can be reached at (608) 285-2141. This is a joint effort of the League of Women Voters of Dane County and NAACP of Dane County.
Voters confined to their home due to age or disability do not need to worry about ID if they send the Clerk's Office a request to be placed on the permanent absentee list. The Clerk's Office will automatically send them a ballot for every election. The voter stays on the permanent list for as long as they continue to return ballots to be counted for each election. The witness who signs the voter's absentee envelope certifies that the name and address are correct for that voter.

Voters who are unsure whether their ID will be accepted as voter ID are encouraged to contact the Clerk's Office at (608) 266-4601 or email@example.com.
Voters who do not have an acceptable voter ID by Election Day may cast a provisional ballot at the polls. They will have until 4:00 pm the Friday of election week to obtain an acceptable ID and present a copy of that ID to the Clerk's Office.
