    Yes, yes you do. A driver's license issued by ANY state, a state ID card, a military ID, a U.S. passport, student ID, or any legitimate photo ID. If you do not have an accepted form of ID, you will be permitted to vote after filling out a challenged voter affidavit and having your photo taken by an election official.
