What Identification Does a Voter Need?
Many Missourians have a Missouri driver's license or nondriver license, which are acceptable forms of photo ID for voting. There are also other options, too.
Missouri's voter ID law effective June 1, 2017, outlines identification options for registered Missouri voters to use on Election Day at their polling location.

Restoration of Voting Rights
If you have been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor and you have been discharged from supervision, you may have your voting rights restored. If you are on supervision solely for a Suspended Impositions of Sentence (SIS), you are already able to vote because an SIS is not considered a conviction. In Missouri, upon completion of a sentence, probation and/or parole, you are eligible to have your voting rights restored as long as your conviction was not associated with voting rights offenses. To restore this right, you will need to:
- have an official Letter of Discharge or other appropriate documentation from
the Department of Corrections, and
- have updated your voter registration or filled out a new registration application form.
You may register to vote at the County Clerk's office, the DMV or by mail at a participating State agency. Be sure to take the appropriate documentation with you when you visit any of these offices for the purpose of Restoration of Voting Rights.
Voting in Missouri's Open Primary Election
A primary election is one way a political party chooses its candidates for the general election. Missouri has an
"open primary". This means that, as a Missouri voter, you may ask for a party ballot and the ballot you ask for
does not have to represent your political party preferences. If you do not want to receive a party ballot, you may still vote on all the questions and for any nonpartisan candidates who may be running.
