The state and Voter ID suit plaintiffs have jointly proposed a series of remedies for voters lacking required photo identification to participate in the upcoming general election.
A voter may utilize an expired photo identification, provided that it expired within the last four years, and it will be deemed to meet the photo identification requirements. No new forms of photo identification are included in the proposal.
A voter may also present a valid voter registration certificate, certified birth certificate, current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government-issued document that shows the voter’s name and address. The address does not have to match the address recorded in official voter lists. Voters utilizing this option would be required to sign a reasonable impediment declaration.
