Registered Missouri voters must show ID at the polls to vote. If you are a registered voter but didn't bring your ID to the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. Your provisional ballot will be counted if you return to the polling place before it closes on Election Day and present acceptable ID, or if the your signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on the your registration record.

We can help with renewing your expired ID, obtaining the documents needed to secure your ID, and covering the cost of getting to and from ID-issuing offices.
