What ID Do I Need?

ACLU of Ohio Vote Center

Make sure you have an acceptable form of ID. Do not wait until the last minute. To vote on Election Day you must have one of the following:

Voters at sign-in table at precinct
  • Photo ID card with your name and current address, like a driver’s license or state ID card.
  • Other government ID with your name and current address. Unfortunately, neither U.S. Passports nor student IDs are accepted.
  • U.S. military ID card with your name and photo (address not required).
  • Identification that shows your name and current address that could include a cell phone bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document like social security or Ohio Job and Family Services benefit letter.

Barriers to voter registration prevent people from getting to the polls. Ohio’s new online voter registration page makes it easier than ever to have your voice heard.
