The first Nebraska election requiring voter ID will be the May 14, 2024, statewide primary election.
- All special and statewide elections after this date will require voter ID.
- No special election prior to May 14, 2024, will require voter ID.
Acceptable IDs must have your name and photo. Valid photo IDs include:
- Nebraska driver's license/state ID
- U.S. passport
- Military ID
- Tribal ID
- Hospital, assisted-living facility, or nursing home record
- Nebraska political subdivision ID (state, county, city, school, etc.)
- Nebraska college or university ID
Expired documents will be accepted. You can get a free state ID for voting from the DMV. If you were born in Nebraska and need your birth certificate to get a free state ID, you can get a free certified copy of your birth certificate from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. Note: A birth certificate is not a valid form of photo ID.
If you do not present an acceptable photo ID at the polls, you will be required to vote a provisional ballot. You must present a photo ID to your local election officials no later than the Tuesday following Election Day or sign a reasonable impediment certification for your vote to be counted.
Reasonable impediments include illness or disability, lack of documents required to obtain a photo ID, or a religious objection to being photographed.
