ID You’ll Need at the Polls

By Kesha Drexel

To vote in Alabama’s March 1 primary, voters must present photo identification or a free Alabama Photo Voter ID card.

Forms of identification accepted include a valid Alabama driver’s license or non-driver ID card, a valid state or federal-issued ID, a valid U.S. passport, a valid employee ID from the federal, state, county or municipal government, a valid student or employee photo ID from a college or university, a valid U.S. military photo ID card and a valid tribal photo ID card.

A voter without a valid form of photo identification can vote on a regular ballot if he or she is positively identified as an eligible voter in the precinct by two election officials. If the voter cannot be identified by two election officials, he or she can vote on a provisional ballot.

For more information, visit www.alabamavoterid.com or call the Secretary of State Elections Division at 800-274-8683 or 334-242-7210.
