If you were born outside Wisconsin, and you need a photo ID to vote, Madison's city clerk suggests that you act now.
The state's February primaries for local governments and school boards are about 10 weeks away. And Madison City Clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl says some states take up to 10 weeks to issue certified birth certificates -- one of the things you'll need to get the ID that will be required at the polls for the first time.
The first statewide election in which the ID's will be required is on April third, the day of Wisconsin's presidential primary. If recall votes are scheduled against the governor and lieutenant governor, they'll certainly be later. That's because the state says it will need at least until late March to determine if there are enough valid petition signatures.
