Absentee Voting Information

Registered Missourians who expect to be prevented from going to their polling place on Election Day may vote absentee beginning six weeks prior to an election. Find information at the County Website. Additional information for military and overseas voters may be found at the section entitled Military and Overseas Voters on the County website. For more information, visit the Absentee section of the St. Louis County Board of Election’s webpage.

Voter ID Information

According to the Secretary of State’s website. Missourians must show one of the forms of acceptable identification and sign the poll book to obtain your ballot: 1) A nonexpired Missouri driver or non-driver license;  2) A nonexpired military ID, including a veteran’s ID card; 3) A nonexpired United States passport; or 4) 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 the driver or non-driver license has expired after the most recent general election, it is an acceptable form of voter ID.

If you do not possess any of these forms of identification but are a registered voter, you may cast a provisional ballot. Your provisional ballot will count if: (1) you return to your polling place on Election Day with a photo ID; or (2) the signature on your provisional ballot envelope is determined by your local election authority to match the signature on your voter registration record. If you cast a provisional ballot, you will receive a stub from your provisional ballot envelope with instructions on how to verify that your provisional ballot is counted.
