ATLANTA — Secretary of State Karen Handel reminds voters to bring photo identification when participating in today’s presidential preference primary.

Voters will be required to show one of the following six forms of photo ID when voting in-person on Election Day:
• A Georgia driver’s license, even if expired;
• Any valid state or federal government issued photo ID, including a free voter ID Card issued by your county registrar or Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS);
• Valid U.S. passport;
• Valid employee photo ID from any branch, department, agency, or entity of the U.S. government, Georgia, or any county, municipality, board, authority, or other entity of this state;
• Valid U.S. military photo ID; or
• Valid tribal photo ID.

If a voter does not have one of these forms of photo identification, they can obtain a free voter ID card at their county registrars’ office or the Georgia Department of Driver Services. Contact information for county registrars can be found on the Secretary of State’s Web site:

Polls will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. today.
