Verifying your identity
We’ll try to check your identity before Election
Day, through the DMV number (driver’s license
number or non-driver ID number), or the last
four digits of your social security number,

If you do not have a DMV or social security
number, you may use a valid photo ID, a current
utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government
check or some other government document that
shows your name and address. You may include a
copy of one of those types of ID with this form—
be sure to tape the sides of the form closed.
If we are unable to verify your identity before
Election Day, you will be asked for ID when
you vote for the rst time.
