      Beginning with the November 6, 2007 election, every Michigan voter who offers to vote at the polls must show picture identification or sign an affidavit attesting that he or she does not have picture identification with them before they are issued a ballot.

      Voters can satisfy the picture identification requirement by showing one of the following:

      Voters who do not possess either of the above may show any of the following form of picture identification as long as they are current:

        another state
      • Federal or state government-issued photo identification

      If a voter states the he or she does not have picture identification, the voter will be given an affidavit to sign. A ballot cannot be issued to the voter unless the voter displays picture ID or signs the affidavit.

      Please note that picture identification only applies to those who vote in the polls on Election Day. Voters who apply for an absent voter ballot are not required to provide photo identification.
