The purpose of a photo ID is to properly identify the voter at the polling place, so it's important that you have a natural expression in the photo, with or without a smile.

Remember these guidelines as you prepare to have your photo taken:

  • No caps, hats, scarves or other head coverings except those worn for religious or medical reasons. In any case, the head covering may not obscure your face.
  • No face veils, stage make-up, disguises, masks or any other article that would obstruct the full face front view or prominent distinguishing facial characteristics such as tattoos, scars, birth marks or moles. 
  • Hair cannot obstruct eyes and facial features.
  • No sunglasses, tinted glasses, non-prescription glasses or eye patches except those worn for medical reasons. 
At no time will an applicant be photographed when it appears that he is purposely altering his appearance so that the photo would misrepresent his identity.
