Voter ID & Voting By Mail

All voters are required to provide ID when voting by mail.

ID is required with application to vote by mail.

If voting by-mail, you must provide your full social security number as your identification with your ballot application. No ID information is required when sending in your ballot, signature matching will be used to process the ballot.

What happens when you go to vote without an ID

If you don't bring a photo ID, you will vote a provisional ballot. You will then have two (2) business days after Election Day to return to the election commission office to show a valid photo ID. Upon returning to the election commission office, the voter will sign an affidavit and a copy of the voter photo ID will be made to be reviewed by the counting board.
