Voter IDs


The existing definition of “valid” adopted by the State Board of Elections (SBE) on June 10, 2014, should be retained.  That definition provides: 

‘Valid’ for all purposes related to voter identification shall mean documents containing the name and photograph of the voter appearing to be genuinely issued by the agency or issuing entity appearing upon the document where the bearer of the document reasonably appears to be the person whose photograph is contained thereon.  Other data contained on the document, including but not limited to expiration date, shall not be considered in determining the validity of the document.
