Most states do not require ID to vote, unless this is your first time voting and you registered by mail. Some states, such as Ohio, Texas, Virginia, and Washington, require some form of ID, while states such as Georgia and Michigan require a photo ID. You should check with your state elections office before you vote, or simply bring ID just in case. If you show up on Election Day without an ID and your state requires ID, you can still vote using the provisional ballot. A provisional ballot allows you to cast your vote, but will only be counted after the election and once your voter eligibility has been verified. It is your right to request and receive a provisional ballot. NO poll worker or monitor may ask about your citizenship status or require proof. This is illegal.
