    When a voter arrives at a polling location, the voter will be asked to present one of the seven acceptable forms of photo ID that is current or expired no more than four years.  If a voter has not been able to obtain one of the seven acceptable forms of photo ID, and has a reasonable impediment or difficulty to obtaining an acceptable form of photo ID, the voter may present a supporting form of ID and execute a Reasonable Impediment Declaration, noting the voter’s reasonable impediment to obtaining an acceptable form of photo ID and stating that the voter is the same person on the presented form of supporting form of ID.

    Election officials will still be required by State law to determine whether the voter’s name on the identification provided matches the name on the official list of registered voters (“OLRV”). After a voter presents their ID, whether it’s an acceptable form of photo ID or a supporting form of ID, the election worker will compare it to the OLRV. If the name on the ID matches the name on the list of registered voters, the voter will follow the regular procedures for voting.

    If the name does not match exactly but is “substantially similar” to the name on the OLRV, the voter will be permitted to vote as long as the voter signs an affidavit stating that the voter is the same person on the list of registered voters.

    If a voter possesses an acceptable form of photo ID but does not have it at the polling place, the voter will still be permitted to vote provisionally. The voter will have six days to present an acceptable form of photo identification to the county voter registrar, fill out one of the temporary affidavits (natural disaster affidavit or religious objection to being photographed affidavit referenced in the Exemption/Exceptions section), or the voter’s ballot will be rejected.
