New Voter ID Requirements

  • Voters must present one of the following to cast a ballot in person:

    • Nonexpired military ID, including a veteran's ID card
    • Nonexpired U.S. Passport
    • Another current photo ID from the Missouri or Federal government
  • Note:
    • Student IDs, driver's licenses from other states, non-driver IDs from other states, and voter registration cards sent by local election authorities are no longer valid forms of ID.
    • If you do not have a valid photo ID, you may cast a provisional ballot that will only count if you return to the poll with a photo ID, or if your signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature that's on file.

  • Look up your polling place so you'll know where you're headed on Election Day.
  • A new state law requires you to bring a valid photo ID to vote. If you do not bring a valid photo ID, you may cast a provisional ballot that will only count if you return to the poll with a valid photo ID or if the signature on your provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on file.
