Does my Photo ID have to be current and unexpired?

Voters over the age of 70

Any voter 70 years of age or older may use an expired photo ID, provided that it is one of the acceptable photo ID’s and that it expired at any time after the voter’s 70th birthday. If the photo ID was unexpired when the voter turned 70 years old, it will be acceptable for voting.
