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

Yes. If you register to vote in person you must show two forms if identification, including one which shows your current Illinois address. If you register to vote by mail, you can meet the ID requirements by putting your Illinois driver's license number or Illinois state ID card number on the form. If you don't have either of those, include a copy of a current and valid photo identification, or a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document that shows your name and address.You can also meet the ID requirements by showing a photo ID issued by an Illinois college or university AND a copy of your Illinois lease or any postmarked mail delivered to the your at your current residence address.
