According to this website about applying in person,, it lists the documents needed to be shown during the application. In both categories of present ID and proof of citizenship, it says an expired passport is valid. However, it doesn't say if I can bring my expired passport for both categories, or if it would only fulfill one of the requirements. Can I bring only my expired passport or do I need to supplement it with another document for the category it doesn't fulfill?
