  • Current federal, state, or local government issued photo ID

  • Current US passport

  • Current military identification card with photo

  • Current student identification with photo from an educational institution

Voters who do not have an acceptable picture identification or forgot to bring acceptable picture identification,  can vote like any other voter by signing an affidavit stating that the voter is not in possession of identification.
