Election Hours & Services

Need an ID or driver's license in order to vote in this year's election?

All BMV branches will have extended business hours on Monday, November 4, 2024 from 8:30 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and Tuesday, November 5, 2024 from 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. (local prevailing time) to issue ID cards and driver's licenses to be used for identification at a polling place. Branches will resume regular transaction activity on Wednesday, November 6, 2024.

These branches will prioritize processing transactions that include new, amended, renewed, or replacement identification cards, learner permits, driver’s licenses, and CDLs that do not require testing for voting purposes. The paper interim credential issued to customers at the branch at the time of the transaction or after a customer has completed an internet transaction is acceptable proof of identification for voting purposes.

Individuals who hold a driver’s license or ID card that expired after the last general election may use the expired card as proof of identification for voting purposes.

Your application for voter registration MUST BE submitted 30 days prior to the election. More information can be found on the Secretary of State's website.
