Will I Need to Bring Identification to Vote at the Poll Site or Attach a Copy to My Vote By Mail Ballot?
Unlike many other states, California does not have a restrictive Voter Identification (ID) law. Generally, a California voter will not have to bring identification to vote.
Under the Help America Vote Act and California Elections Code section 2150(7), when registering to vote, a person must provide either:
You can make a mark
A mark must be accompanied by the written name of the person. The name must be written by a witness over the age of 18.
You can use a signature stamp
A signature stamp may be used as a signature if a witness over 18 years of age also hand writes your name. However, you must have either (1) registered to vote on line and have had your signature stamp approved by the Department of Motor Vehicles and transmitted to the Secretary of State; or (2) used the stamp on an affidavit in the presence of a county official.
