Every Michigan voter who offers to vote in the polls must comply with the requirement by showing picture identification or signing an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification. (See MCL 168.523 for voter identification requirement.)

Voters with picture ID
Voters can satisfy the ID requirement by showing a Michigan driver’s license or a Michigan personal identification card.

Voters who do not possess either document may show any of the following forms of picture ID as long as it is current:

  • Driver’s license or personal ID card issued by another state.

Voters without picture ID:
Michigan election law anticipates that not all voters will have picture ID. Voters who do not have
acceptable picture ID or forgot to bring acceptable picture ID to the polls can vote like any other voter by signing an affidavit Questions regarding the voter identification requirement can be directed to your local city or township clerk’s office.
