What Do I Bring to Vote?

Tennessee Driver's Licence Photo

You must present an ID with your name and photograph to vote. The most commonly used photo ID is a Tennessee Driver License. You do not have to present the new REAL ID or your Voter Registration Card to vote.

Other photo ID options include:

  • U.S. Passport
  • Tennessee Department of Safety photo ID
  • U.S. Military photo ID (active or retired)
  • Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit with your photo
  • Photo ID issued by the Federal or Tennessee state government

These photo IDs may be expired, unless you are voting in Davidson County for the first time.

Student IDs, library cards, and photo IDs issued by cities, counties and other states may not be used.
