Identification Requirements

Idaho Statute § 34-1113 and Idaho Statute § 34-1114

A registered voter must either present a photo ID or sign a Personal Identification Affidavit.

Forms of photo identification may be any one of the following:

  • An Idaho driver’s license or Idaho photo identification card.
  • A U.S. passport or Federal photo identification card.
  • A tribal photo identification card.
  • A current student photo ID, issued by an Idaho high school or post secondary education institution.
  • A license to carry a concealed weapon issued by a county sheriff in Idaho.

If a voter does not have an Idaho Driver’s License, they can use an Idaho photo identification card issued by the Department of Transportation to vote.

If a voter is not able to show an acceptable ID, the voter will be given the option to sign the Personal Identification Affidavit.

  • On the Affidavit, the voter swears to his/her identity under penalty of perjury, a felony under Idaho Code § 34-1114.
  • After signing the Affidavit, the voter will be issued a ballot to be tabulated with all other ballots.
