Voter Identification Requirements

Voters must bring identification to the polls in order to verify identity. Identification may include:

  • A current and valid photo identification card (e.g., driver's license or state ID)
  • A military identification
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the voter’s name and current address.

Note: You cannot use as proof of identification a notice that the board of elections mailed to you. Voters who do not provide one of these documents will still be able to vote by provisional ballot.
