IMPORTANT--NEW OHIO DRIVER'S LICENSE OR STATE ID REQUIREMENTS--Renew well before October 1, 2020 deadline!

In order to vote, they usually ask to see your driver's license or state ID at the polling place.  While technically there are other ID's that are sufficient, such as a recent utility bill or bank statement with your name and address on it, they will always push for your driver's license.  Now that Ohio is participating in Real ID, there is considerably more documentation required to get a driver's license or state ID card.  To get a "Compliant" license or ID card that will be acceptable proof of your identity to the TSA to board a plane or enter a federal building, you will have to provide documentation for your full legal name, date of birth, Social Security number, proof of legal residence, and 2 proofs of your Ohio street address.  More documentation will be required to show name changes from the last name on your birth certificate because of marriage or divorce.  They no longer give you your license at the facility; it is printed at a secure facility in Columbus and then mailed to you at your mailing address, and can take 3 weeks...so apply early!  Your old driver's license will no longer be recognized by the TSA after October 1, 2020, even if it expires after that date.  Even the standard, non-compliant license or state ID card requires more documentation than it used to.  I'm not sure if a TSA-compliant license or ID will be required to vote by the time of the November 2020 election, or if you can still use the standard, less documented ID to vote.
