Do I need to provide ID when I vote by absentee ballot?

First time voters who register to vote by mail are required by Federal Law to provide ID the first time they vote in person or by absentee ballot.  You can generally meet the ID requirements by providing a copy of your in-state drivers license.  Other acceptable forms of ID include a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government document that shows your name and address. 

Some states have additional voter ID requirements for absentee voters.  Contact your  Local Election Official if you have questions about voter ID in your state.
