Voting At The Polls On Election Day

My new driver’s license indicates that it is NOT FOR FEDERAL IDENTIFICATION. May I use it as identification at the polling place?

Yes. You may continue to use your current driver’s license at the polling place when you vote. When you check-in to vote, in lieu of the driver’s license, you may also show a credit card with your name and signature, an ID with your name and photograph, or any document with your name and address such as a checkbook or a utility bill.

You must present one of these
