Registered Hawai'i voters may be asked to show ID at the polls to vote. If voter's recitation of name, residence address & date of birth matches the poll book, a regular ballot will be provided.
However, sometimes poll workers are confused and will ask for ID for voting. Voters may also be confused and believe that they cannot vote without ID. VoteRiders can help with up-to-date resources and free assistance to help you with HI voter ID questions.

First-time voters, including those who have not voted in a previous Federal election or who have never voted in their county of residence in a Federal election, must present documentation proving their identity in order to complete their voter registration.
