Around 500 pieces of legislation related to voting have been implemented by state legislatures since the 2016 presidential election, ProPublica reports. And in some states, understanding the changes could be the difference between getting to vote and being turned away at the polls.
Arkansas, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota and Texas have passed new laws since 2016 requiring ID at the polls, per ProPublica’s report. Here’s what voters in those states need to know:
- Arkansas’s voter ID law is currently being challenged in the state’s supreme court, however voters should plan on it being in-tact come November. Voters are required to show a photo ID; if they do not have one, they can sign an affidavit, according to the National Conference of State Legislators.
- Iowa voters will need to show an Iowa driver’s license, Iowa non-operator’s ID, military ID, U.S. passport, tribal ID, veteran’s ID or voter ID card. This year, they’ll be allowed to sign an oath of identity if they do not have one of those forms of ID, but starting in 2019 they’ll only be allowed to cast a provisional ballot.
- Missouri voters will need some form of ID, though it does not need to include their photo. If you do not have photo ID, you will can see what else you can bring here.
- North Dakota voters must provide an ID such as a driver’s license or tribal ID; if they do not have one, they can cast a provisional ballot, but they must present a qualifying ID to an election official within six days of the election for their vote to be counted.
- Texas voters must provide one of seven forms of government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license or passport. If they do not have one, they must sign an affidavit affirming their identity. The law is contentious, because it “creates criminal penalties for those who make false statements in their sworn affidavits,” reports the New York Times, “a move that critics of the law believe confuses and frightens potential voters.”
In total, 34 states require voters to either show ID or sign an affidavit when they vote. You can see the full break down here.
