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.
Any combination of these documents may be presented to fulfill the photo and signature requirements.

The voter identification cards voters received in the mail from the Elections office are not approved ID and are not necessary at the polls.

However, if a person does not bring an acceptable form of identification, the person can still vote a provisional ballot.
