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. The canvassing board shall determine the validity of the ballot pursuant F.S. 101.48(2)
