What to bring when voting

On Election Day 2023, non-registered residents can register and vote at the same time. Two forms of identification are required for those registering to vote on Election Day, or for those who need to file an address change. One of those ID documents must include a current address.

Acceptable forms of ID include:

  • Passport or Military ID
  • Driver’s License or State ID card
  • College/University/School/Work ID
  • Vehicle registration card
  • Lease, mortgage or deed to home
  • Credit or debit card
  • Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid card
  • Insurance card
  • Civic, union or professional membership card
  • LINK/Public Aid/Department of Human Services card
  • Illinois FOID card

Registered voters do not need any identification if they vote in the correct precinct on Election Day. However, if there is a question about someone’s registration, an election judge may ask for some form of identification, so it is advisable to bring ID when voting.
