Voter ID

Missouri’s new photo voter ID law (HB 1631), effective on June 1, 2017, outlines identification options for registered Missouri voters to use on Election Day at their polling location.

Most Missourians have a Missouri Driver's License or Nondriver License, which is an acceptable photo ID for voting. There are also plenty of other options, too.

Missouri’s photo voter ID law also requires the state of Missouri to assist voters who might not have a photo ID   with the process of obtaining one free Missouri non-driver license for the purpose of voting.


Option 1 - Government Issued

Present ONE of the following forms of valid photo ID Missouri issued Driver or Non-Driver license, U.S. Passport, or Military ID.

Option 3 - Registered but have no ID

 If the voter has no form of identification, but is a registered voter, he or she may cast a provisional ballot. 
There are two ways your vote counts:
  1. If you come back to your polling place and show a photo ID, your vote counts.
  2. If your signature matches the signature in the voter registry, your vote counts.
