If you are voting in person for the first time or voting at a new polling location, Pennsylvania Law requires that you bring a valid form of identification. Valid ID includes any photographic ID issued by the state such as a Driver’s License or PennDOT ID, or by the Federal Government like a Passport or Armed Forces ID Card; non photographic ID such as a confirmation card from the County Voter registration office, a current paycheck, utility bills, and others can also be acceptable ID.
