New York Today: How to Register to Vote
Remember to bring a valid piece of identification such as a driver's licence, health card or utility bill bearing your name and address. Photo ID is not required. See the City of Ottawa's list of acceptable identification.
Finally, theres the perennially under-appreciated contests for state secretaries of state. In many states, the secretary of state is also the chief elections officer. That role gives them valuable influence over the integrity of the states electoral process. Look no further than Kris Kobach, the current Kansas secretary of state who is currently locked in a tight race for the governorship there. Kobach is best known for his campaigns against the perceived threat of voter fraud. Until this spring, he chaired Trumps now-defunct national commission on the subject, which eventually found no widespread evidence to support its claims. A federal court blocked the state voter ID law that Kobach had enthusiastically championed and found him in contempt for not registering tens of thousands of voters who had been blocked by it.

In some states, too, this applies to people who simply forgot their ID at home on the day of the election. If you fail to show up to the polls with the ID you can request a provisional ballot and come back with your ID later, says Jackel. If its the same day, you can go back to your polling location; if its later than that, you need to bring the ID your local election officials office, which you can find by Googling your area code along with election official. Often it will be your county clerk.
