Missouri ID Needed for Voting

On October 19, 2018, the Missouri Supreme Court ruled that Missouri voters will NOT be required to sign a legal statement if they present an acceptable, non-photo id. 

Acceptable non-photo identification documents include utility bills, paychecks, student identification cards from Missouri post-secondary institutions, and bank statements.  These documents must show your name and current address.

If you have questions about voting requirements for the November 6 general election, call your local election authority or the Secretary of State’s Office at 573-751-4936. 

Voters must show an acceptable form of ID when going to vote. Acceptable forms of photo ID are as follows:

  • Missouri Driver's License
  • Missouri Non-driver License
  • US Passport
  • Military ID

If you do not have any of the above forms of ID, you can show any of the below secondary forms of ID.

  • Paycheck
  • Bank Statement
  • Voter registration card
  • ID from a Missouri Universiyt, College, Vocational or Technical School
  • Utility Bill
  • Government Check
  • Other Government Document showing your name and address

If you do not have any of the above forms of ID but are a registered voter you can still vote a provisional ballot. See "provisional ballot" below for more information.

If you need a photo ID and don't have you, fill out this form and the Secretary of State's office will help you obtain the documents you need.
