Valid Voter ID check list

What is a Valid Voter ID?

A government issued photo ID is a voter's best option. If a voter does not have an ID with a picture and signature, there are alternatives to present. Voters can provide a combination of a picture ID AND a signature ID from the approved list below. You might want to take a picture of this list in case this becomes an issue at a polling location.

Before any election it is important to confirm that  you have a valid voter ID. Equally important is to know what form of ID is considered a valid voter ID. When voting in person, whether at an early voting site or at a polling place on Election Day, photo identification is required. Voters must bring a current and valid identification that contains their name, photograph, and signature.

If you do not have a photo ID with your signature, you can combine a PHOTO ID and a SIGNATURE ID from this list below.

Acceptable forms of identification include

  • Florida driver license.
  • Florida identification card issued by the DMV.
  • United States passport.
  • Debit or credit card.
  • Military identification.
  • Student identification.
  • Retirement center identification.
  • Neighborhood association identification.
  • Public assistance identification.
  • Veteran health identification card issued by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
  • A license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm issued pursuant to § 790.06 F.S.
  • Employee identification card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the Federal Government, the state, a county, or a municipality.

While it is not required that voters bring their voter information card to the polling place on Election Day, it will expedite the check-in process since a poll worker can quickly find you in the voter database via your voter registration number.
