2017 Election Dates in Target Voter ID States

Strict voter ID states do not allow registered voters to vote without presenting valid identification during or after the voting process, or require documentary proof of citizenship to register to vote.

Voting by Absentee Ballot can be an option for people who might have trouble getting to the polls or standing in long lines on Election Day. In some states, voter ID requirements are less stringent for Absentee Voting than voting in person. Please check VoteRiders' Absentee Voting/Voter ID Requirements for information on states' absentee voting requirements.

If you need help securing your ID to vote, or the underlying documents needed to get ID, please call our Voter ID Hotline: 844-338-8743

Shortcuts: AL, AZ, FL, GA, IN, KS, MI, MOMSND, NH, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, WI
