Voter ID Information

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.

• Option 1: Provide a Missouri issued Driver or Non-Driver license, U.S. Passport, or Military ID

• Option 2: Provide a secondary form of identification, such as a paycheck or bank statement and sign a statement confirming their identity

• Option 3: If the voter has no form of identification, but is a registered voter, they may cast a provisional ballot


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.

Official list of acceptable identification

Note: a court ruling in October of 2018 altered a policy that was created by the Secretary of State's office that would have required those without a photo ID to sign a sworn statement saying they knew they were not in compliance but would be allowed to vote.  That sworn statement is no longer allowed/required.  If you do not have a photo ID but do have another form showing you to be a resident of the same address where you are registered, you are allowed to cast your vote.  At minimum, you will always be allowed to cast a provisional ballot if you believe you are registered to vote.
