Do I need a Photo ID to vote absentee?

In-Person Absentee Voters in Clerk's Office 
All in-person absentee voters must show Photo ID every time they vote in the clerk's office. Having provided identification with prior absentee applications does not exempt the voter from providing identification. 

Regular Absentee Voters- by Mail 
Electors must submit Photo ID with their absentee application in order to receive a ballot. Proof of identification must be provided only once with the application (unless the voter re-registers with a new name or address).

Indefinitely Confined Absentee Voters 
Indefinitely confined voters and voters in special care facilities can provide a witness signature on their absentee ballot certificate envelope in substitute for showing Photo ID.
