Voters must show a state or federal issued photo ID at the polls to vote in-person. The following are acceptable forms of photo IDs, even if expired:
- TN driver license or TN state ID
- US Passport
- ID issued by TN Department of Safety and Homeland Security
- ID issued by federal or TN state government
- US Military ID
- TN handgun carry permit
NOTE: College student ID unacceptable
If you are a registered voter but didn't bring your ID to the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. In order for your ballot to be counted, you must bring valid ID to the election commission office before close of business two business days after the election.
If you are an indigent voter and unable to obtain ID, or if you have a religious objection to being photographed, you can sign an affidavit of identity and vote.
