NEW VOTER ID LAW (Effective 8/10/2016)
NEW Photo ID Requirements
Voters will still have to show an approved form of photo identification under SB-14 in order to vote. However, these forms can now be expired up to four years. In addition, if a voter is not able to obtain, and has a reasonable impediment to obtaining, one of the seven forms of approved photo ID, the voter may vote by:
(1) signing a Reasonable Impediment Declaration, and
(2) providing one of various forms of supporting documentation. Supporting documentation can be a certified birth certificate (must be an original), a valid voter registration certificate, a copy or original of one of the following: current utility bill, bank statement, government check, or paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the voter, although government documents including a photo must be original and cannot be copies.
If a voter meets these requirements and is otherwise eligible to vote, the voter will be able to cast a regular ballot in the election.
