If you do not have photo ID and you need to register to vote, you will be asked to show a birth certificate to confirm your identity. If you do not have your birth certificate, you will be asked to sign a Qualified Voter Affidavit attesting to your identity.
Like the Challenged Voter Affidavit (CVA), the Secretary of State’s office will follow-up after the election, with any voter who signs a Qualified Voter Affidavit.
In order to receive a ballot, you will still need to either complete a CVA (with photograph or Affidavit of Religious Exemption) or have your identity verified by an election official.
One of the acceptable forms of ID is personal verification by certain election workers. If an election worker can personally identify you, that will serve as your photo ID. The election worker will sign a statement as to their personal knowledge of you. Please keep in mind, only certain election officials are allowed to identify you. Those officials are the Moderator, Supervisors of the Checklist, Ward Clerk, City Clerk and Deputy City Clerk. No other election worker is approved by law to identify you.
If an election worker cannot identify you and you do not have a photo ID, you can complete a Challenged Voter Affidavit (CVA). Part of completing the affidavit requires you to have your photograph taken. If you cannot allow your photograph to be taken due to religious beliefs, you will be asked to also complete a Religious Exemption Affidavit in lieu of having a photograph taken.
If you do not have a Photo ID, please tell one of the Greeters working at the polls. The Greeters will then direct you to the proper Election Official for assistance. It is important to know that if an election worker cannot identify you and you refuse to complete any portion of the Challenged Voter Affidavit or refuse to either have your photograph taken or sign an Affidavit of Religious Exemption, you will not be permitted to vote.
Yes, qualified voters can register and vote on Election Day at their polling location. Please review the documentation you will need to provide in order to register to vote.

Not only will you learn more about elections and other function of the City Clerk’s Office, but you will also learn about all other City departments and your local government. For more information, visit the Citizens Academy website or contact the City Manager’s Office.
If you complete a Challenged Voter Affidavit (CVA), you will receive a verification letter from the Secretary of State requesting confirmation that you voted in the election. If you do not respond in writing to the Secretary of State within 90 days of the date it was mailed, the Attorney General will conduct an investigation to determine whether fraudulent voting occurred.

For a large election, such as this one, we often have several extra election workers to help with the various duties. For this election, we expect to have 4-6 extra workers per ward helping the voters get their ballots cast in an efficient manner as possible.
All polling locations have wheelchair-accessible voting booths, space available at tables in the room and the “One4All Accessible Voting System.” This system utilizes a tablet, headphones, and a printer to assist voters who are hearing or visually impaired. This booth is also large enough to accommodate a wheelchair.
If you require assistance at any time, please ask an Election Official for help. He or she will not be able to answer questions about or discuss the individual candidates, but they can assist you in filling out your ballot at your direction. Voters with a disability can also bring someone to assist them; they do not have to have an Election Official assist them. (The exception is the person assisting can’t be the voter’s employer or union representative.) Anyone who is assisting the voter must take an oath.
