TULSA, Oklahoma -- Starting next month, Oklahoma voters must have proof of identity when they head to the polls.

Voters overwhelmingly passed State Question 746, known as the Voter ID Law, in November 2010.

Starting July 1, 2011, voters will be asked for proof of identity whether they are voting at the polls or voting early at the County Election Board.

The most common form of ID is a driver's license, but any current federal, state, or tribal document with your name and photograph will work.

Tulsans head to the polls next on August 9, 2011.
