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.

    I would like to thank all of you Public Union people and left wing supporters who are doing my work to accomplish my dream for this country. Keep up the good work! Please also work harder for me so I can succeed in my plan for America. Your friend, George Soros.

      You can thank Republicans moron. It is wanks like Walker that are destroying this country and uneducated idiots like your self that vote against your own interests that have perpetuated the fraud. Walker is shutting down the DMV to further his agenda to disenfranchise voters and make it MORE DIFFICULT TO REGISTRAR! Walker and his evil doers will do anything to win elections and this is another example of it!

      I could be so wrong, but it sounds like the Repulicans made it harder or time consumming to get a drivers license or id (issued also by DMV) and that to me makes me wonder if that had anything at all to do with their recent new law to have an id to vote. Again, I could be wrong.

    This story is old and inaccurate already. In fact, “the Division of Motor Vehicles reversed course Thursday and announced it will maintain all of its licensing centers and will open four new locations across the state.” This is in response to concerns that expressed by the people that there would not be enough offices to service those voters who need IDs to vote under the new law that was passed in WI.
