Voter Identification

The St. Louis County Election Board requires all voters to show some form of identification in order to vote. A government issued photo I.D. is the preferred form of identification because it can be scanned, allowing the lines to move quickly. If you forget your ID, or simply do not have a government issued photo I.D., YOU CAN STILL VOTE! However, you will need to either present some other approved form of identification or fill out a provisional ballot and sign a statement confirming your identity. 

In general, there are 3 options for showing ID in order to vote:

Option 1: A Government Issued Photo ID. 
Provide a government issued photo ID (e.g. CURRENT Missouri Driver or Non-Driver License, Military ID, US Passport), you can show it to the Poll Worker at your polling place who will process you normally. 

Option 2: Secondary form of ID
Provide a secondary form of identification (Voter Registration Card, ID from a MO University or College, Utility Bill, Bank Statement, Government Check, Government document showing your name and address) and sign a statement confirming your identity.

Option 3: No ID
If you have neither of the above IDs, but are a registered voter, you will cast a provisional ballot. Your vote will only be counted if the signature on the ballot matches the signature we have on the Voter Registration file. 

More information about the Voter ID law can be found at the Missouri Secretary of State's website
