H.B. 458 would require virtually all Ohio voters to present a form of photo identification, such as a Ohio driver’s license, state ID card, interim identification form, U.S. passport or passport card or military ID card. In-person voters without a valid photo ID will have to vote with a provisional ballot and provide a photo ID after Election Day to have their vote counted. Voters who vote absentee by mail will have to provide a copy of their photo ID, their Ohio driver’s license or ID number or the last four digits of their social security number.
