Photo ID required to vote

Even though the voter ID law has been in effect for over a year, Circuit Clerk Edna Stevens says some people still don’t understand what constitutes a photo identification.
Any one of the following types of photo I.D.’s may be used on Election Day for voter identification purposes:
• A driver’s license
• A photo I.D. card issued by a branch, department or entity of the State of Mississippi
• A U.S. passport
• A government employee identification card
• A firearms license
• A student photo I.D. issued by an accredited Mississippi university, college or community/junior college
• A U.S. military I.D.
• A tribal photo I.D.
• Any other photo I.D. issued by a branch, department, agency or entity of the United States government or any state government
• A Mississippi Voter Identification Card.
If a registered voter does not have any of these acceptable forms of photo  I.D., a Mississippi Voter Identification Card is available at no cost to the voter at any Circuit Clerk’s office in Mississippi.
