Am I able to vote if I don’t have one of the accepted forms of ID?


If you don’t have one of these pre-approved IDs and cannot reasonably obtain one, you will be asked to sign a special form known as a “Reasonable Impediment Declaration,” and will be asked to bring one of the following forms of identification (either a copy or original):

  • Any government document that includes their name and address;
  • Out-of-state driver’s license.
  • A voter registration certificate.
  • Current utility bill Bank statement.
  • Government check.
  • Paycheck.
  • Certified U.S. birth certificate.
  • Document (including foreign birth certificates) that establishes a voter’s identity.
