What if I do not have photo ID?

One of the acceptable forms of ID is personal verification by certain election workers. If an election worker can personally identify you, that will serve as your photo ID. The election worker will sign a statement as to their personal knowledge of you. Please keep in mind, only certain election officials are allowed to identify you. Those officials are the Moderator, Supervisors of the Checklist, Ward Clerk, City Clerk and Deputy City Clerk. No other election worker is approved by law to identify you. 

If an election worker cannot identify you and you do not have a photo ID, you can complete a Challenged Voter Affidavit (CVA). Part of completing the affidavit requires you to have your photograph taken. If you cannot allow your photograph to be taken due to religious beliefs, you will be asked to also complete a Religious Exemption Affidavit in lieu of having a photograph taken.

If you do not have a Photo ID, please tell one of the Greeters working at the polls. The Greeters will then direct you to the proper Election Official for assistance. It is important to know that if an election worker cannot identify you and you refuse to complete any portion of the Challenged Voter Affidavit or refuse to either have your photograph taken or sign an Affidavit of Religious Exemption, you will not be permitted to vote.
