Do indefinitely confined voters have to provide a photo ID?

  • An indefinitely confined voter does not need to provide a copy of photo ID. Instead, the witness’ signature on the Absentee Ballot Certificate Envelope satisfies the photo ID requirement.

  • A signature is still required from both the witness and the voter.
  • The Absentee Ballot Certificate Envelope is the envelope in which you return your voted ballot to the municipal clerk.
  • If you have photo ID, you may choose to send a copy of it along with your absentee ballot request, but it is not required. If you choose to provide a copy of your photo ID, you won’t have to supply one again unless you change your name or address.

    If you choose to vote absentee in the clerk’s office or at the polling place on Election Day, a photo ID will be required.
