As of the November 6, 2007 election, every Michigan voter who offers to vote at the polls must show picture identification or sign an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification.
To implement this requirement, precinct election inspectors will ask voters for photo identification at the polls. If the voter does not have an acceptable photo ID in his or her possession, that voter may sign an affidavit attesting that he or she is not in possession of picture identification. A voter who completes an affidavit will be allowed to vote a regular ballot.
Voters can satisfy the picture identification requirement by showing a Michigan driver’s license or a Michigan personal identification card.
The following are also acceptable forms of photo identification as long as they are current:
Federal or State Government-issued photo identification
Military identification card with photo
Non-Michigan Driver’s License or Personal identification card
Student identification with photo - high school or accredited institution of higher education
Tribal identification card with photo
