Voting is a key part of our participation in society.
Having ID that doesn’t match your gender identity or presentation should not affect your right to cast a ballot, in any state. But with increasingly strict voter ID laws, trans people may face barriers—both because of difficulties in obtaining an ID that’s accepted, or because they might run into bias or misunderstandings of the law when it comes to their gender.
Knowing your rights can help avoid or solve problems at the polls. That’s why the Action Fund provides resources to guide trans people through the process of voting, from registration to putting your ballot in the ballot box.
