Missouri's photo ID requirement for voting starts June 1, 2017. That means in any election after that date, you will be asked to show a photo ID before you vote. If you voted in the last election, you can vote!
Here's how you can ShowIt2Vote:
Show a government-issued photo ID.
There are two ways your vote counts.
If your signature matches the signature in the voter registry, your vote counts.
If you come back to your polling place and show a photo ID, your vote counts.
After June 1, 2017, if you want a photo ID to vote and don't have one, the Missouri Secretary of State's office will help you obtain one (1) non-driver license for free. We can help you obtain the documents you need at no cost to you.
You may need a copy of your certified birth certificate, certified marriage license, certified divorce decree, certified adoption papers or amended birth certificate, a court order that changed your name, a social security card that reflects your name, or naturalization papers that prove citizenship.
If you do not have a photo ID to vote, but already possess the necessary documents to obtain a non-driver license and want one (1) to vote, please visit your local license office and request a non-driver license for voting purposes. Go to http://www.dor.mo.gov to find the nearest license office.
To obtain a non-driver license from the Missouri Department of Revenue, you will need to provide the following:
