UWL can provide a valid Proof of Residence for voter registration:

UW-La Crosse students can update their current address in their WINGS Student Center and also print an enrollment form which includes their current local address. The form is located in the lower right corner of the Student Center in the "Other Resources" area. Look for the WI Voter Verification link. If using a mobile device to view the form, please remember to remove the pop-up blocker in your web browser settings.

Bring your Photo ID when you Vote

Not registered yet? You can register to vote at your polling place on election day. See the box to the left about how to register to vote.

Wisconsin requires a photo ID to vote.

For UWL students, the Eagle ID Card can be used as your photo ID for voting in Wisconsin. This card can be obtained and replaced at the Card Office at 1131 Student Union. Be sure to note that the eligibility to use the EagleID for voting expires two years after it is issued.
