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.
