Voter ID: Under Michigan Law, voters are asked to show identification at the polls. If you do not have an ID, you can still vote. You will be asked to sign an affidavit stating that they're not in possession of a photo ID. Your vote will be counted with all others on Election Day.
The following types of photo ID are acceptable:
- Michigan driver's license or state-issued ID card
- Driver's license or personal identification card issued by another state
- Federal or state government-issued photo identification
- U.S. passport
- Military ID with photo
- Student identification with photo from a high school or accredited institution of higher learning
- Tribal identification card with photo
The ID does not need to include your address.
