Missouri Secretary of State
Identification is required in the State of Missouri to vote. The Secretary of State’s office provides ways for those without acceptable identification to obtain needed identification for voting purposes. Acceptable forms of identification include: a nonexpired Missouri driver or non-driver license; a nonexpired military ID, including a veteran’s ID card; a nonexpired United States passport; or another photo ID issued by the United States or the state of Missouri which is either not expired or expired after the date of the most recent general election. If a person does not possess any of these forms of identification, but is a registered voter, you may cast a provisional ballot. If you do not possess an acceptable form of photo ID, you might be eligible for a free Missouri nondriver license for voting purposes.
The Missouri Department of Revenue, through the license offices throughout the state, provides one (1) nondriver license at no charge to Missourians who wish to obtain a photo ID for voting purposes (and do not already have one).
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Bureau of Vital Records, can provide one (1) fee exempt copy of a certified Missouri birth certificate to an individual seeking to obtain one (1) free nondriver’s license in order to vote in Missouri if the applicant does not already have a current nondriver’s license or current driver’s license.
The Missouri Secretary of State will help you obtain official documents needed to get a Missouri nondriver license. Examples include birth certificate; marriage license; adoption decree; U.S. Department of State naturalization papers; or court order changing one’s name. We will pay for official documents from other states or the federal government.
