Krieser defended the memo, telling the Capital Times that the Voter-ID law does not have language requiring DMV employees to ask people who request a photo ID whether they needed it for voting, or for other purposes. "If the person initiates that direction, then certainly, we will help them. We will not be coy," said Krieser. "But we still are not going to be selling it at the counter as a free ID."

Krieser also told the paper that the DOT is planning to place signs at DMV offices, reminding people that they need to check an appropriate box on the application forms in order to receive a free ID. However, Krieser also said the signs are "in the design phase," and could not give a date when they would be placed in the DMV offices.
