Proper Identification

New Voter Photo ID law (as of July 1, 2017)

Effective June 1, 2017, the following forms of identification are acceptable for voting purposes in Missouri:

*Nonexpired Missouri driver license;

*Nonexpired or nonexpiring Missouri non-driver license;

*Nonexpired document which contains the voter’s name and photograph and is issued by the United States or the State of Missouri; or

*Nonexpired or nonexpiring military ID card which contains a photograph

You may also use these forms of identification and sign a statement provided by the election judge at your polling place:

*Identification issued by the state of Missouri, an agency of the state, or a local election authority of the state;

*Identification issued by the United States government or agency thereof;

*Identification issued by an institution of higher education, including a university, college, vocational and technical school, located within the state of Missouri; or

*A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government document that contains the name and address of the voter

If you do not possess any of these forms of identification, but are a registered voter, you may still cast a provisional ballot. Your provisional ballot will be counted if you return to the polling place and show a valid photo ID or if the signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on your voter registration record.
