Do I have to present personal identification documents when I register to vote?
No, unless you are registering to vote for the first time in your county by returning a registration form through the mail.
If you register using the mail, you can include a photocopy of:
- Current utility bill, bank statement
- Current valid photo I.D.
- Government check, paycheck or other document.
Whatever document you present must have your name and address printed on the ID. Certain voters, such as military voters, are exempt from this requirement.
For more information, please visit the Voter Registration Process and Forms page.
