When you go to polls be sure you flip your ballot to the back. That's where you'll see 11 state questions, and one of them means you'll be voting, on voting.
It's state question number 746.
It would require you to show proof of your identity when you show up to vote.
Oklahoma state Senator John Ford (R)-Bartlesville has been working on the legislation since 2007.
He says it comes amid concerns of voting fraud in other states.
"If it's happening elsewhere, it has the possibility of happening here so this can be a preemptive move to protect the integrity and make sure the voters are confident that our system is good and that their vote is counted," said Senator Ford.
But TU professor James C. Thomas disagrees.
"We have no evidence of voter fraud in the state of Oklahoma," said Thomas.
Thomas says not only is voter ID unnecessary, but he says it's also unconstitutional.
Thomas says it interferes with voters' rights of suffrage.
"The Supreme Court of the United States says we can take judicial notice that voter ID interferes with the rights of people," said Thomas.
Ford has a different take.
"The U.S. Supreme Court says it does not violate the law so that's good. Secondly, what we're doing, it does not disenfranchise any group. We're asking for a photo ID, which could be your driver's license, a Native American card with your picture on it, your passport," said Ford.
Ford says you could also use your voter ID card that you get from the election board, and if you don't have that you could fill out a provisional ballot.
Still Thomas says the law would discourage certain people from voting that may not have an ID.
"It's been shown, a number of cases already, that the voter ID has the affect of discouraging all these people to even go to the polls," said Thomas.
"Many states that have had voter IDs have shown that their participation and their polling rates actually increase because an individual realizes my vote's important. I know my vote is legitimate, and they also know every other vote that's cast is legitimate," said Ford.
Thomas filed a lawsuit regarding voter ID. He withdrew that, but says if the question passes he'll re-file the lawsuit.
