If you do not have a valid photo ID you may vote only if you are identified by two election officials in the polling place as a voter on the poll list who is eligible to vote and the election officials execute an affidavit stating this. 

If you do not have a valid photo ID and the election officials are not able to identify you, you must cast a provisional ballot.

Free photo ID available!

If you do not have a photo ID, you can get one from the Secretary of State or from your county Board of Registrars. You are able to get a new photo ID card each time you move within the state. 

If you are elderly or have a disability such that your polling place is not accessible, you are not required to produce identification when voting by absentee ballot.
