Voters are required to provide ID whenever they cast a ballot. When voting on Election Day, voters must provide one of the approved forms of identification in order to vote. When voting absentee, voters must provide either their driver's license or non-operator's ID number or their four digit voter PIN when requesting an absentee ballot be mailed to them or when voting absentee at the courthouse.
