MA voter ID?

Q: Are you sure about MA requiring an ID? I have been voting for almost 15 years now and I have no memory of ever being asked for an ID… They just ask my name and street address.

A: Good morning! Generally, in MA, you do not need to provide ID to vote. If you are a first time voter who registered by mail, you must be prepared to show ONE of the following forms of ID at the polling location that is current, valid, and displays both your name and address:

  • Massachusetts-issued photo identification (including driver’s license or state ID card)
  • Utility bill Bank statement
  • Paycheck
  • Government check
  • Other government document

Even if you are not a first time voter who registered by mail, it is possible that an election officer may nonetheless request a form of written identification. Therefore, the Elections Division advises all voters to bring some form of printed identification as a precaution, such as your driver’s license, recent utility bill, a rent receipt on a landlord’s printed letterhead, a lease, duplicate copy of a voter registration affidavit, or any other printed identification which contains your name and address. 

  • Not valid
  • Passports
  • Birth certificates
  • Naturalization papers
  • Student IDs without addresses

Hope this clears some things up! Happy voting!
