What IDs are acceptable at the polls
When you arrive at your polling station, you’ll need to bring a valid photo ID such as a driver’s license, passport, military photo ID, tribal photo ID, or voter identification card.
What if you have No Photo ID
If you do not have one of the 6 acceptable forms of photo IDs, you can get a free state-issued photo ID at your county registrar’s office or Department of Driver Services. Be sure to bring documentation showing the voter’s date of birth, evidence that the applicant is registered to vote, a photo identity document that shows the voters’ full legal name and date of birth. Contact your county registrar’s office for more information.
How do I vote Absentee
Fill out, sign, and send in an absentee application by mail. Get the application here. Absentee Ballot Application. You’ll receive your ballot by mail or your email address. After you fill out the ballot, make sure you mail it back so it arrives on Election Day.
What if you’re not listed on the Voter Rolls
If you encounter a situation where the poll worker says you’re not on the list of voters at that location, then insist on casting a provisional ballot. Provisional ballots allow you to vote even if you can’t prove you meet the requirements at that time. You have three days after the Election Day to go to your county elections office with acceptable ID, in order for your vote to count.
