MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker’s administration plans to announce which Division of Motor Vehicle offices will close statewide as part of a reorganization effort to expand hours elsewhere and come into compliance with new requirements that voters show photo IDs at the polls.

A preliminary list released last month called for closing 16 offices and expanding hours at nine others across the state.

The recently enacted state budget requires that DMV driver license and ID card services be offered in all 72 counties at least 20 hours a week. Currently, only 30 counties have offices that meet that 20-hour requirement.

The changes were expected to go into place next year.
