Do I need to provide ID when I register to vote in Massachusetts

If you are registering for the first time in Massachusetts, you must include a copy of your ID with your voter registration form. If you forget, you'll need to provide ID the first time you vote in person or by absentee ballot. Acceptable identification includes: a copy of a current and valid photo identification OR a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document that shows your name and Massachusetts address.
