ID requirements

Probably Not.
Call our Nevada Voter Protection Hotline at (775) 877-VOTE if you have any questions about your ID.
In general, most voters do not need to show ID to vote. For instance, if you have ever voted in Nevada before, or if you registered to vote using a Nevada DMV ID, then a signature match will confirm your identity.

Some First-Time Registrants will be required to show ID as well as Same-Day Registrants. There are other circumstances where an ID might be required, such as if a voter’s signature does not match after several tries or if it shows “ID Required” in the Electronic Poll Book.

Same-Day Registrants have a stricter ID requirement, only a valid Nevada DMV-issued driver’s license or non-driving card or a Tribal Real-ID are accepted.

For all other instances, the ID should have a photo or physical description. Below is a list of some acceptable forms of ID:

Nevada Driver’s license

Nevada Identification Card

Armed Forces Identification Card

Sheriff’s Work Identification Card

Identification Card issued by an Agency of the State of Nevada or other political subdivision

Student Identification Card (with photograph)

United States Passport

Tribal Identification Card

Other forms of identification may be used if it meets the same requirements as any of the IDs above. Please check with your County Clerk/Registrar of Voters for other acceptable forms of identification.
