Bring Your I.D.

What I.D. do I need to vote in-person?

One of the following:
  • Georgia driver's license (even if expired)
  • Valid I.D. card (with photo) issued by a state or the federal government
  • Valid employee photo I.D. from any state or federal government entity
  • Valid U.S. Passport
  • Valid Military I.D. card (with photo)
  • Valid Tribal I.D. card (with photo)

What if I forgot my I.D.?

You may vote in a special way – with a provisional ballot, according to O.C.G.A. 21-2-417(c). Your vote will only be counted if the registrar can verify your identity within the 3 days after the election. See more about provisional ballots on page 5.


If you (1) registered to vote by mail, (2) did not provide a valid I.D. when you registered, and (3) have not voted in Georgia before, then you must present a recent copy of any of the following forms of I.D. when you vote or submit your absentee ballot:

  • Any one of the acceptable forms of I.D. noted at the top of this page,
  • Utility bill,
  • Bank statement,
  • Government check,
  • Paycheck, or
  • Other government document that shows your name and address.
