Dear Editor:

Voter IDs: many kinds.

The information in my recent letter regarding voter IDs was based upon the brief answers I was given when I called the county clerk’s office for information. After my letter was published, I received a nice personal letter from our county clerk listing many additional kinds of IDs that are acceptable as voter IDs. Here is the list:

Valid Colorado driver’s license.

Valid ID card issued by CDOR.

Valid US passport.

Valid employee ID card with photo of elector issued by any federal, state or local government.

Valid pilot’s license issued by the FAA or other authorized agency of the U.S.

Valid U.S. military ID card with photo (may have out-of-state address).

Copy of current utility bill or bank statement, government paycheck or other government document that includes name and address.

Valid Medicare or Medicaid card.

Certified copy of U.S. birth certificate.

Certified documentation of naturalization.

Valid student ID card with photo issued by an institute of higher education in Colorado.

Letter from the administrator of a group residential facility verifying residence at that facility.

Valid veteran ID card issued by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs veterans health administration with photo.

Valid ID card issued by a federal recognized tribal government, certifying tribal membership.

I greatly appreciate receiving this information from our county clerk and hope all of your readers will check the list to be sure they have proper identification before going to the polls. You must vote, so scan this list now and be prepared.
