Proof of Citizenship
Effective January 1, 2013, all first-time registrants are required to submit Proof of U.S. Citizenship to register to vote. 

Got Photo ID?
Every voter must show photo ID when voting.  A voter requesting a ballot by mail must either write his or her driver's license number on the application or send a copy of a photo ID to get a ballot.  A voter age 65 or older may use an expired document.

Certain individuals are exempt from the ID requirements:  permanent advance voters (voters with illnesses or disabilities), overseas military voters and their spouses and dependents, and voters with religious objections who sign declarations.
