What must voters bring with them to the polls in order to vote?

Before arriving at a precinct polling location, voters should ensure their voter registration information is accurate and up to date by visiting Michigan.gov/Vote. Voters can also confirm their polling location at this website.

Michigan’s voter identification requirement asks voters to present up-to-date and accurate photo identification in order to cast their ballot or, if they do not have it, to sign an affidavit. Acceptable forms of photo ID include:

  • Michigan driver’s license or state identification card
  • Driver’s license or state ID card issued by another state
  • A valid U.S. passport
  • Federal or state government-issued photo identification
  • Military ID with photo
  • Student ID card
  • Tribal identification card with photo.

Please note, state law does not require that the voter’s photo ID show the voter’s address.
