A valid tribal identification card, whether or not the card includes a photograph of the voter.
If the voter doesn't have any of the above forms of Valid Voter ID, two forms of identification can be shown to the election judges that bear the name of the voter and provide evidence that the voter resides in the voting precinct, which may include:
