A federal judge has approved a deal between the Voter ID plaintiffs and the state to permit voters without legally required photo identification to cast ballots in the HD120 special runoff election.

A voter lacking proper ID can provide a valid voter registration certificate or a “current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows the name of the voter.” If the voter did not bring any of those documents, the voter must provide their date of birth and last four digits of the social security number.

The voter will be permitted to cast a provisional ballot, which will be counted by the provisional balloting board unless “there is conclusive evidence that the affiant is not person in whose name the ballot is cast.”
