You do not need a photo ID to vote. And you may register to vote and cast your ballot on the same day--bring along proof of residence. You will also need your driver's license number or state ID, if you have valid one. If not, you'll need the last four digits of your social security number. If you've never had any of those you may still register, but you will still need proof of residence. This proof may be electronic. Have questions about registering to vote, voting early, or the voting process? Contact your municipal clerk.
