What happens when you go to vote without an ID

You can vote using a provisional ballot. Your provisional ballot will count if the signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on your voter registration application. You also have the right to present written evidence supporting your right to vote no later than 5pm on the second day after the election.
