New Voter Identification Requirement
Due to a recent court ruling, every Michigan voter who offers to vote in the polls must comply with the new requirement by showing picture identification or signing an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification. The new voter identification requirement is effective starting with the November 6, 2007 General Election.
Voters with picture identification:
Voters can satisfy the picture identification 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 identification as long as they are current:
Driver’s license or personal identification card issued by another state
Federal or state government-issued photo identification
Military identification card with photo
Student identification with photo from a high school or an accredited institution of higher education
Tribal identification card with photo
Voters without picture identification:
Michigan election law anticipates that not all voters will have picture identification. Voters who do not bring picture identification to the polls or do not possess picture identificationcan still votelike any other voter by signing an affidavit.
Voters requesting absentee ballots:
The Michigan voter identification requirementdoes notapply to absentee voting. Absentee voters do not need to show picture identification to request or return an absentee ballot.
