Tennessee ID Needed for Voter Registration

Identification is not required during registration but must be provided at the polls. See "ID Needed for Voting" for more information.

If you register to vote by mail, the first time you vote you must present an acceptable form of ID. Examples of acceptable IDs are:

  • Current photo ID with voter's name and photo
  • One of the following: a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows the voter’s name and address.

Voters who register by mail must vote in-person the first time they vote after registering.
