Voter Identification

The St. Louis County Election Board requires all voters to show some form of identification in order to vote. A government issued 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 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 two options for showing ID in order to vote:

Option 1: Acceptable ID. 

-  Identification issued by the federal government, state of Missouri, an agency of the state, or a local election authority;

-  Identification issued by Missouri  institution of higher education, including a university, college, vocational and technical school;

-  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;

-  Driver's license or state identification card issued by another state.

Option 2: No ID

If you do not have an "Acceptable ID" ( listed above), 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. 

If you have any questions, please contact the St. Louis County Election Board at 314-615-1800.
