Election Day voters will be asked to provide an approved form of identification at the polling place. Pre-registered voters may sign an oath of identification for an election held in 2018 as opposed to showing an approved form of identification. Voters who are not pre-registered may also be required to provide proof of residence. Any non-preregistered voter that cannot show identification may have his or her identity attested to by another registered voter in the precinct who has a proper identification.
