Know Your Rights!
Your name as printed on your ID does not need to exactly match your name as it appears on the registration rolls. As long as the two versions of your name are substantially similar, you will be allowed to vote on a regular ballot.
Your address as printed on your ID does not need to match your address as it appears on the registration rolls. Even if these addresses are completely different, you will be allowed to vote on a regular ballot.
If you have a documented disability or religious objection to being photographed, you can apply for an exemption from the photo ID requirement at your local registrar’s office.
Need an ID?
If you don’t have one of the accepted IDs, you can get a free Election ID Certificate from your nearest Department of Public Safety Office, or at one of the Secretary of State’s mobile ID stations.
In order to get a free Election ID Certificate, you’ll need to bring documentation with you to verify your identity and to show that you are a U.S. citizen. Most people need an original birth certificate plus two supporting documents.
If you don’t have your birth certificate, you can get one from a Vital Records Office for free (if you go in person and tell them you need a birth certificate for voting), or online for $22.
