If you haven’t submitted a ballot for the primary, Tuesday is the last day to do it, but one thing to remember is you need to bring an ID with you.

FULL LIST: Acceptable IDs on Election Day

Hogan said a Florida driver’s license is best.

But a passport, military ID, or even a veteran health ID card will work. You just have to show proof of your signature and a photo.

But they don’t have to be on the same card. You can have proof of your signature on one card, and your photo on the other.
