With all the discussion lately about a proposed photo I-D requirement for voting in elections, the Missouri Secretary of State's Office is reminding voters there's no change in acceptable identification from previous elections.
See the news release below from Secretary Of State Robin Carnahan:
Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Robin Carnahan today is reminding Missouri voters about the various types of identification they may use to cast a ballot on Election Day.
Recent debates in Missouri and around the country about new laws requiring voters to present specific forms of government-issued photo IDs in order to vote have created confusion for many Missouri voters.
To clarify the requirements for voters and those helping out at the polls, Secretary Carnahan’s office is offering a new online voter identification education kit available at www.GoVoteMissouri.com.
“It’s critical that all Missouri voters know what they need to cast a ballot on November 6,” said Carnahan. “In Missouri, ID requirements have not changed from prior elections; voters can bring one of several acceptable forms of identification to the polls such as a voter ID card, a Missouri student ID, a driver license or a current utility bill or bank statement with the voter’s name and address on it.”
Carnahan encourages voters to visit www.GoVoteMissouri.com for a complete list of acceptable identification plus examples. Registered voters need only to present one of several acceptable forms of identification to receive a ballot at the polls. Under Missouri law, acceptable voter identification includes:
Additionally, if a voter does not possess any of these forms of identification, he or she may still cast a ballot if two supervising election judges, one from each major political party, attest in writing they personally know the individual.
Voters can also verify their registration, download a sample ballot and find their polling places at www.GoVoteMissouri.com.
