Voting on Election Day

Know Your Options & Your Rights (Download an Informational Card in English or Spanish)

Find Your Polling Place

Polling places may have changed, and some jurisdictions may offer options like Vote Centers or Central Polling locations in addition to regular polling places. Check the postcard you received from your election authority or call 866-OUR-VOTE for help. Contact your election authority to confirm your voting options.


VOTER ID: If you want to vote absentee in person or vote a regular ballot on Election Day, you will need to show a government-issued photo ID, like a MO driver's license, MO state ID, military ID, or passport, that is current or expired after November 8th, 2022. Your address does not need to match the address on the ID. See examples here.

If you don't have one of those IDs, you can cast a special provisional ballot on Election Day that will be counted if your signature matches the signature the Election Board has on file, or if you return to the polling place later in the day with a qualifying photo ID.

You Have The Right To:

  • Receive assistance from the person of your choice, as long as it's not your boss or union rep

  • Get a new ballot if you make a mistake

  • Vote curbside from your car if you cannot go into the polling place

  • Vote no matter how late it is if you are in line by 7pm (and stay in line)

  • Vote free from intimidation, including by police, poll watchers, or challengers. No one may disrupt the polling place or impede access to it. Report any intimidation to poll workers and 866-OUR-VOTE.

What If Your Name Is Not on the Rolls or Your Eligibility Is Challenged?

If your name is not on the rolls at your poll, the poll worker must call the Election Board to confirm your registration and direct you to your correct polling place. If your registration cannot be confirmed, you can cast a provisional ballot. Provisional ballots must be cast at the correct polling place to count.

If your eligibility is challenged, a poll worker should confirm your registration. If you are registered, you can vote. Challengers cannot speak directly to voters or disrupt voting. Only an election official can ask you to confirm your registration or ID.
