Voter Identification

Since 2007, every Michigan voter who votes at the polls or requests a ballot over the counter must show picture identification or sign an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification.  A ballot cannot be issued unless the voter displays picture identification or signs the affidavit.

To satisfy the requirement, voters must show a Michigan driver’s license or a Michigan personal identification card.

In the absence of either document, a voter may show any of the following forms of picture identification as long as they are current:
 
  • Driver’s license or personal identification card issued by another state
  • Federal or state government-issued photo identification
  • U.S. passport
  • Military identification card with photo
  • Student identification with photo from a high school or an accredited institution of higher education
  • Tribal identification with photo
