Identification Required to Vote


Identification at the Polls

 

State law (section 101.043, Florida Statutes) requires a person to bring photo and signature identification before a person can vote.

The acceptable forms of identification are:

  • Florida driver license
  • Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
  • United States passport
  • Debit or credit card
  • Military identification
  • Student identification
  • Retirement center identification
  • Neighborhood association identification
  • Public assistance identification
  • Veteran health identification card issued by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs
  • A license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm issued pursuant to F.S. 790.06
  • Employee identification card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the Federal Government, the state, a county, or a municipality.

The voter information cards received from the Supervisor of Elections office are not considered valid identification for voting.

If a person does not bring an acceptable form of identification, they will have the option to vote a provisional ballot. A person who votes a provisional ballot will be given written notice of his or her rights as a provisional ballot voter.
