Do I need to bring identification in order to vote?

Identification requirements vary by state. Some states do not require ID documents at the polls at all, but rely on a matching signature instead.

To find out your state’s identification requirements go to our State Voting Requirements directory. Select your state, and on the following page select your election location and "Identification Requirements." You'll find the information you need below the heading, "Voting In-Person."

If you have a valid photo ID, the U.S. Vote Foundation recommends that you bring it with you to the polls.

If you need help getting an acceptable ID in your state, you can contact Vote Riders for assistance.
