Vote by mail
Find your polling place
No ID is needed to vote by mail. But you will be asked to show a photo ID if you vote in person.
All eligible voters are sent a ballot at least 18 days before the election, and up to 90 days before the election for eligible overseas voters. But voters either need to show photo identification or sign a ballot declaration to vote in person. Permissible forms of photo ID include:
A driver’s license
A state identification card
A student identification card
A tribal identification card
An employer identification card
Note that if you opt to sign a ballot declaration and are voting for the first time in person and did not provide either a state-issued ID number or the last four digits of your Social Security Number when you registered, you may still need to provide identification. If this applies to you, you may be required to show proof of identification. You can show photo ID, a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document.
