Voter Identification at the Polls

Before receiving a ballot at the polls, all electors are required to state their name and present a current photo identification showing the elector’s name. If the elector does not present photo identification, including but not limited to a valid driver’s license, a school district or postsecondary education photo identification, or a tribal photo identification, the elector shall present a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, notice of confirmation of voter registration, government check or other government document that shows the elector’s name and current address.

If the elector does not have one of the items listed above, they may complete a polling place identification form and provide their driver’s license number, the election judge will contact the Clerk and Recorder/Election Administrator’s office to verify the driver’s license number, if the number can be verified the elector will be allowed to vote a regular ballot; if the driver’s license number cannot be verified, the elector will be required to vote a provisional ballot. To ensure your vote is counted, bring sufficient identification to the polls and vote a regular ballot.

Contact the Clerk and Recorder/Election Administrator’s office with questions at 406-778-7106.
