On July 1, 2011, the “voter ID” law went into effect.
The law requires all voters to produce a government-issued form of identification to prove their identity before they are allowed to vote. A document used for proof of identity must include your name, which must match your name on your voter registration record, a photograph of you, and an expiration date that is later than election day.
