Acceptable ID Types for Oklahoma

Voters in Oklahoma must show ID at the polls. You may show any document issued by the United States, the State of Oklahoma, or a federally recognized tribal government if it includes your name, a photograph of you, and an expiration date that is later than the election in which you are voting. Valid forms of identification include;

  • Oklahoma driver license
  • Oklahoma Identification Card
  • United States passport
  • United States military identification

The law also requires that your name on your proof of identity must match your name in the Precinct Registry. Additionally, the only non-photo ID that is acceptable to use as proof of identity while voting is your free Voter Identification Card issued by the County Election Board.

What happens when you go to vote without an ID

If you do not have an acceptable ID, you may vote on a provisional ballot. You will be asked to sign a sworn affidavit alongside your provisional ballot.
