Am I required to show identification when I vote?

When you arrive at your polling place, you will complete a voter's certificate which asks for your name and residence address. You will then present the certificate and proper identification to the poll officials who will verify that you are a registered vote in that precinct by checking the voters list for that precicnt. Voters are required to present identification at their polling place prior to casting their ballot. Proper identification shall consist of any one of the following:

  • A valid Georgia driver's license, even if expired
  • Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a Free Voter ID Card issued by the Gordon County Board of Elections and Voter Registration Office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services
  • Valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. Government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority or other entity of this state
  • Valid U.S. Passport ID
  • Valid U.S. Military Photo ID
  • Valid tribal photo ID

Note: The "precinct card" you receive to confirm your voter registration and voting location is Not a form of identification, and it will not be sufficient identification to vote.
