The League is challenging changes in Missouri’s election law that took effect on Aug. 28. This includes the requirement for a government-issued photo ID to vote on Nov. 8. During the August primary, a voter ID card, student ID or utility bill were accepted as identification to vote.
If you do not have one of the required forms of photo ID, the Missouri Department of Revenue, through the license offices throughout the state, will provide one nondriver license at no charge for purposes of voting. Call 573-526-VOTE or go to: Driver Licensing Checklist (mo.gov) for more information.
To get that ID, you will need to provide a certified copy of your birth certificate. If your name has changed, you will also need to provide the marriage license, divorce or adoption decree, or other official document showing the change. If you need help getting any of those documents, the Secretary of State’s office may be able to help. Go to this link: Voter ID Help Request Form (mo.gov), call 1-866-868-3245 or email: GoVoteMissouri [at] sos.mo.gov.
Voters may request forms, cast an in-person absentee ballot, register to vote or get more information from their election authority. Check with the Secretary of State web site or your local election authority for more information.
