With polls opening up in less than a week and early voting beginning Friday, Nov. 2, the State Election Board is reminding voters to bring proof of identity to the polls.
State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax is reminding voters of the voter ID law, which requires voters to show proof of identity prior to receiving a ballot.
Voters may present a unexpired, government issued photo identification, a voter identification card issued by a County Election Board or sign an affidavit and vote through a provisional ballot. Voters are required to present only one of these forms of identification.
A government issued photo ID must contain the following information:
-Name of person
-Photo of the person to whom it was issued
-An expiration date that is after the date of the election
The second option, voter ID card, are issued through County Election Boards when voters are registered. Free replacement cards are available at County Election Boards.
The third option is for voters who do not have the proper identification forms listed above. Voters who cast a provisional ballot are "required to fill out and sign an affidavit attesting to their identity." Provisional ballots are not put through the voting device and will not be approved or rejected until after the election day.
