 HAVA ID

Voter Registration Process

 Help America Vote Act of 2003

HAVA ID: Title III of HAVA states that an individual meets the identification requirements for voter registration by mail if he or she presents one of the following documents to the appropriate election official that shows the current name and address of the voter as listed on the voter registration application:

  • Valid photo identification
  • Utility bill
  • Bank statement
  • Government check
  • Paycheck
  • Any other official government document
 

In addition, HAVA allows for voters who register by mail to include a copy of one of the above documents with their voter registration form in order to meet identification requirements. If they do not present a copy of identification with their form, they may present it at the polls the first time they vote.
