If you’re a registered voter, you can vote!
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.
Driver License – Nondriver license – Passport – Military ID
- Sign the provided statement and show one of the following.
Voter Registration Card – ID from a Missouri university, college, vocational or technical school – Utility Bill – Bank Statement – Government Check – Paycheck – Other Government document showing your name and address
- Vote a provisional ballot. 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) nondriver 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 nondriver license and want one (1) to vote, please visit your local license office and request a nondriver license for voting purposes. Go to www.dor.mo.gov to find the nearest license office.

- Proof of Name, Date of Birth, Place of Birth

The Secretary of State’s office has developed a memorandum regarding the Voter ID law, concluding that the provisions of Article VIII, Section 11 and Section 115.427. RSMo will allow for optional ways of voting beyond the 2017 and 2018 elections.
