Required Identification

Legislation requires that all voters must present valid identification prior to receiving their ballot. Photo identification is the easiest, and is ID that is government-issued, valid and has your photo, name and address. If your identification does not meet these criteria it will not be recognized as an acceptable form of photo identification.  Two pieces of non-photo identification is also permitted if you don't have photo identification and are unable to obtain photo-ID before Election Day, but both must contain your name and at least one contains your address.
