  • ID issued by any Commonwealth agency
  • ID issued by the US Government
  • US Passport
  • US armed Forces ID
  • Student ID
  • Employee ID
  • Confirmation issued by the County Voter Registration Office
  • Non-photo ID issued by the Commonwealth that shows name and address

  • Firearm permit
  • Current utility bill that shows name and address
  • Current bank statement that shows name and address
  • Current paycheck that shows name and address
