    A voter’s name is considered substantially similar if one or more of the following circumstances applies:

    1. The name on the ID is slightly different from one or more of the name fields on the official list of registered voters.
    2. The name on the voter’s ID or on list of registered voters is a customary variation of the voter’s formal name. For example, Bill for William or Beto for Alberto.
    3. The voter’s name contains an initial, middle name or former name that is either not on the official list of registered voters or on the voter’s ID.
    4. A first name, middle name, former name or initial of the voter’s name occupies a different field on the presented ID document than it does on the list of registered voters.

    In considering whether a name is substantially similar, election officials will also look at whether information on the presented ID matches elements of the voter’s information on the official list of registered voters such as the voter’s residence address or date of birth.
