Voter Identification is Required
Will I need an ID to vote?
Yes. All voters in Ohio must bring one form of acceptable identification to the polls in order to verify their identity. Acceptable identification includes any ONE of the following:
- A current (not expired) and valid photo identification card issued by the State of Ohio or the U.S. government (includesOhio Driver License or Ohio ID Card); or
- A current (not expired) military identification (‘military ID’); or
- A current* utility bill (includes cell phone bill), an original or copy; or
- A current* bank statement, an original or copy; or
- A current* government check, an original or copy; or
- A current* paycheck, an original or copy; or
- A current* other government** or school document, an original or copy.
*dated within last 12 months and shows voter’s name and current address.
**does NOT include a voter registration acknowledgement notification mailed by the board of elections.
A voter presenting an Ohio driver license or Ohio ID card that shows voter’s former address is permitted to cast a regular ballot so long as the voter’s current residential address is printed in the official poll list of registered voters for that precinct.
Voters who do not provide any ONE of these documents at the precinct will still be able to voter using a provisional ballot. Voters who do not have any of the above forms of identification, including a Social Security number, will still be able to vote by signing an affirmation statement swearing to the voter’s identity under penalty of election falsification and casting a provisional ballot.
Remember to bring appropriate ID to polls (Ohio Secretary of State website)
