Effective with the November 6, 2007 election, picture identification is required. Voters can satisfy this picture identification requirement by showing a Michigan driver's license or a Michigan personal identification card. A voter who does not possess either document may show any of the following forms of picture identification as long as they are current.

  • Driver's license or personal identification card issued by another state.
  • Federal or state government-issued photo identification.
  • U.S. passport
  • Military identification card with photo
  • Student identification with photo from a high school or an accredited institution of higher education.
  • Tribal identification card with photo.
An affidavit has been developed for voters who do not possess picture identification to sign prior to voting.
