  • You will be asked to show a valid photo ID with signature to vote in Florida.
  • Acceptable forms of photo ID include: Florida driver’s license or ID card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles; US passport; debit or credit card; military ID; student ID; retirement center ID; neighborhood association ID; public assistance ID; veteran health ID issued by the US Department of Veterans Affairs; license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm; or an employee ID card issued by the federal government, the state of Florida, or any county or municipality. The identification must have a photo and a signature.
  • If your photo ID does not include your signature, you will be asked to provide another ID that has your signature.
  • What to do if you don’t have and ID? You will be able to vote a provisional ballot. Your ballot will count if the signature on your ballot matches the signature on your voter registration record.
