Your vote is your voice.

It’s time to vote like our rights depend on it. Because they do.

Here’s what voters will need to access the Missouri ballot on November 6.

Registered to vote?

Well you’ll need one of the following to access the ballot:

Option 1:

  • Nonexpired Missouri driver license;
  • Nonexpired or nonexpiring Missouri non-driver license;
  • Nonexpired document which contains the voter’s name and photograph and is issued by the United States or the state of Missouri; or
  • Nonexpired or nonexpiring military ID card which contains a photograph

Option 2:

  • Identification issued by the state of Missouri, an agency of the state, or a local election authority of the state;
  • Identification issued by the United States government or agency thereof;
  • Identification issued by an institution of higher education, including a university, college, vocational and technical school, located within the state of Missouri; or
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government document that contains the name and address of the voter

Option 3:

If you do not possess any of these forms of identification, but are a registered voter, you may still cast a provisional ballot. Your provisional ballot will be counted if you return to the polling place and show an Option 1 ID or if the signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on your voter registration record.

If they have one of the option 1 or 2  forms of id they should insist on a regular ballot.  Provisional ballots often are not counted. 

If someone is interfering or attempting to interfere with your right to vote, or with anyone else’s right to vote, that may be voter intimidation and in violation of federal law.

If you experience any of the following, call the Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683):

  • Spreading false information about voter requirements, such as an ability to speak English, or the need to present certain types of photo identification (in states with no such requirement);
  • Aggressively questioning voters about their citizenship, criminal record, or other qualifications to vote, in a manner intended to interfere with their rights
  • Falsely presenting oneself as an elections official
  • Displaying false or misleading signs about voter fraud
  • Other forms of harassment, particularly harassment targeted towards non-English speakers and voters of color.

The people need to vote this November 6. And we’re prepared to help.

Happy voting!
