Driver's license
 

The purpose of requiring photo ID to vote (however misguided) is to establish identity. If the voter has obtained a driver's license, they have established their identity, and the expiration of the license does not invalidate that. Maintaining driving privileges (or the non-identity purpose of any accepted ID) is unrelated to the purpose of using the ID for voting, and should not be required in order to use the ID.
