No ID is needed for voting UNLESS you registered to vote for the first time by mail and did not provide a copy of a current and valid photo ID along with a current utility bill or bank statement, you will need to show some form of ID at the polls.
Acceptable forms of ID are:
- An original or copy of a current and valid photo ID with or without an address (the address doesn't need to match the address on your registration)
- Original or copy of a utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, student ID card or other government document, including ID issued by an Indian nation, tribe or pueblo that shows your name and address (the address doesn't need to match the address on your registration)
- Verbal or written statement by you (the voter) with your name, year of birth and registered address
If you cannot provide any of the above forms of ID you may vote a provisional ballot.
NOTE: Some municipal jurisdictions do have voter ID rules in place that require ID to be provided in order to vote in city elections. This includes the city of Albuquerque and the city of Rio Rancho. Please contact your county clerk for more information.
