Washington early voting
Washington voter ID
Photo ID required
All Washington counties now vote by mail. However, county auditors must open at least one vote center where voters can cast their ballot in person. Voters who wish to vote in person are the only voters subject to ID requirements.
You must provide a valid photo ID when you vote in person, such as:
state drivers license
state ID card
student ID card
tribal ID card
employer ID card
Absentee voters do not need to provide ID in Washington state.
