Approved Bills—can be electronic or paperThe bill must be from the list below and show the voter’s name and current address. The bill must be due 30 days before or after the election (except for the student fee statement). Voters can bring a paper bill, or show an electronic version of the bill on an electronic device such as a tablet or smartphone.
Option 3—VouchingA registered voter can sign an oath confirming an unregistered voter’s address in the precinct. This is called ‘vouching.’ Both voters must live in the same precinct. A registered voter can vouch for up to eight unregistered voters as long as they personally know that each voter lives in the precinct.
Option 4—Student housing list plus student ID cardIf a college or university has provided a student housing list to elections officials, a student on the list can show a student ID card with a photo.
