Voter ID

Voter ID Card

Poll workers will ask you to show a current and valid photo ID when you vote at your polling place. Voter ID strengthens the public’s faith in the integrity of our elections by enabling poll workers to match a voter’s face to the name they give at the polls.

Protecting your vote:

  • We will provide a free Voter ID to voters who don't already have a current and valid Photo ID
  • No eligible voter will be turned away at the polls. Voters who do not bring an acceptable ID to their polling place can vote using a standard Provisional Ballot. The ballot will be counted if the signature they give at their polling place matches the signature on their voter registration
  • Mail ballots do not require ID
