Voters heading to the polls Tuesday to cast their ballots in local, state and national primary elections will have to show a photo ID, the first statewide election during which a photo ID is required.

The state Department of Motor Vehicles provides them free for residents who need one to participate in elections.

Voters who already have a valid driver’s license or state ID are in good shape to cast their ballot, but for those who don’t have one, the DMV will give one as long as individuals have the following as listed on the state DMV website:

When residents go to obtain their ID, they will be given a paper receipt that has their photo on it and can be used to vote. Their real ID will be mailed to them.

The Sturtevant office is located at 9531 Rayne Road, and it’s open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. both Monday and Tuesday.
