Do I need voter ID?
This is only applicable to voters registered in the District of Columbia. If you plan to vote in a different state, scroll down to check your state’s voter ID requirements.
If you are a first-time voter who registered by mail and did not provide proof of residence when registering, you will need to show proof of residence in order to cast a live (regular) ballot. In addition, if you will be registering during the Early Voting period or at the polls on Election Day, you will need to provide proof of residence in order to register and vote.
- Valid D.C. DMV-issued ID
- Government check or bank statement
- Current utility bill (does not include cell phone bills)
- Student housing statement/tuition bill
- Another government document that shows your name and registration address
