Do I need to provide ID when I register to vote in Maryland
No, but first-time voters must provide ID before voting for the first time in person or by absentee ballot. If you'd like, you can submit your ID with your voter registration form instead. Acceptable forms of ID include: a copy of a current and valid photo ID, such as a Maryland driver's license; MVA-issued ID card; student photo ID card; or an employee photo ID. If you don't have a photo ID you can submit a copy of a current utility bill; bank statement; government check; paycheck or; other government document that shows the your name and address.
