  Place of birth (state or foreign country)

Voter Identification

The St. Louis County Election Board requires all voters to show some form of identification in order to vote. Your signed Election Board I.D. is the preferred form of identification because it contains your township and precinct, information we need to keep the lines moving smoothly.  If you forget your I.D. Card you can still vote but you will need to present some approved form of identification. Approved forms of identification in Missouri are:

  Identification issued by the state of Missouri or any agency of the state;
  Identification issued by any agency of the United States Government;
  Identification issued by an institution of higher learning located within Missouri (university, college, trade or technical school);
  A recent utility bill, bank statement, government check, or other document containing the current name and address of voter;
  Drivers License or state identification card issued by any state.

Voters with no identification may vote only when an election judge receives permission from our office.

Lost I.D. Card

Replacement Voter I.D. Cards may be requested by contacting the Election Board, giving your name and address.

New I.D. Cards will be mailed to all voters in each even numbered year, to new voters when they register and to anyone who changes his or her address.

Election Days

There are four statutory election dates each year.  They are the first Tuesday after the first Monday in February, April, August and November.

One week before each election our office will mail you a postcard giving the date of the election, the address of your polling place and the names of the registered voters in your household.


Your polling place will open promptly at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Special Services for those with Disabilities


More than three fourths of our polling places are handicapped accessible and all locations have been supplied with one vote recorder seven inches below standard height to accommodate a wheelchair.

If your polling place is not handicapped accessible you may vote on election day at our Maplewood office which is on ground level with reserved, handicapped parking.

If you would like to use your own polling place but are unable to leave your car, a bi-partisan team of election officials will bring a vote recorder and ballot to you.

If you are voting absentee because of illness or disability you do not have to have your affidavit envelope notarized.
