Voter Certificates

The Election Commission provides voter certificates for voters to use as another means of identification. Voter certificates may be purchased in person at the Election Commission and will be processed as the voter waits. Voter certificates can be used as an additional piece of identification for purposes of obtaining a driver's license or state ID.


Voter certificates cost $3.00 and can be paid for with cash or check.

      • The voter may fax, email, or mail the request form to the Election Commission.

      • After the 10 day period, the voter may return to the Election Commission to purchase the voter certificate.
