DMV Offers Free Rides to Get IDs

Now through September 22, 2011, any citizen needing a DMV Photo ID for voting purposes can call 1-855-STATEID (1-855-782-8343) to arrange a free ride to their local DMV.

When you call, a representative will go over what documentation is needed to obtain an ID card.  You will need your birth certificate, social security card, proof of residency, and if you have changed your name from your birth certificate, any documentation proving the name change.  Citizens will receive a call back on September 26, 2011 to confirm your request and to notify you of the time frame of pick up (appointment).  On September 28, 2011 an agent from the local DMV will come to your home and take you to the DMV to obtain your ID and then return you home.

The DMV has posted more information about this on their website:
