Every state is slightly different in its Election Day ID requirements. In all cases, you should bring a driver’s license with you just to be on the safe side. (Again, if you don’t have a driver’s license, just contact your local election official listed in the phone book or online to check on other acceptable forms of ID.) Follow this link (http://www.866ourvote.org/state) and select your state to find out if you need to bring some form of government issued identification with you to the polls.

Some states require you to bring a “voter ID” with you. Your “voter ID” card will come to you in the mail after you register to vote. In addition to your “voter ID”you will receive information telling you where your polling place is and what you need to bring with you on Election Day. Also, if you marked your “sample ballot” make sure to bring it with you! It will not only help you remember who and what you want to vote for, but it will save you a ton of time in the voting booth.

If you don’t receive something in the mail you can always call your state’s office and double check you are registered. Click here to find the contact info for your state’s Secretary of State office. Again, because this card includes your polling place address on it, make sure to double check your polling place the night before the election!
