Do I need to show photo identification to vote?

No. New Jersey law does not require voters to present a photo ID before being able to vote. However, if you did not provide identification when you registered to vote (e.g., your driver’s license number, non-driver identification number, or the last four digits of your social security number) or the county commissioner was unable to verify your identification information, you must show some form of identification at the polling place when you go to vote. Acceptable forms of ID include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Any current and valid photo ID, such as a New Jersey Driver’s License, military or government ID, student or job ID, store membership card, or US passport; or
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, car registration, government check, rent receipt, or other official document that contains the name and address of the voter.

 

If you don’t have any of these forms of ID, you may still cast a provisional ballot. However, you must submit a copy of your ID to your county election office before the close of business on the second day after the election for your ballot to be counted.
