Voter checklist

Know your rights

Under Federal law, you have a right to:

  • Vote free from intimidation.
  • Cast a vote by provisional ballot if there is uncertainty regarding your registration status or eligibility.
  • Receive assistance when voting if you are unable to vote unaided due to blindness, disability, illiteracy, or inability to read English; and you have a right to choose who assists you, so long as they are not your employer or union representative.

Under Missouri law, you have a right to:

  • Choose someone to help you vote if you have a disability, cannot read or write, or are blind, may choose to bring in a person to help you vote. Your assistant does not have to be over the age of 18 or have to be a registered voter.
  • Vote after serving a felony conviction if you have served your entire sentence, including probation or parole, unless you have been convicted of an election offense.

ID requirements

When voting in-person on Election Day, you will be asked to present one of the following forms of ID:

  • MO driver’s license
  • US passport
  • Military ID
  • Student ID
  • Copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government document that contains the name and address of the voter
  • Employee ID issued by the Federal Government, state, county or municipality

Forgot your ID?

You can cast a provisional ballot if you forgot your ID. As long as you are eligible and voted in the proper precinct, your provisional ballot will count as long as your signature on the ballot matches the signature in your registration record.


Don’t have an ID?

You can vote in person by provisional ballot without a photo ID. As long as you are eligible and voted in the proper precinct, your provisional ballot will count as long as your signature on the ballot matches the signature in your registration record.

Report issues

Have you experienced or observed voter suppression efforts (e.g. polling place changes, voter purges, intimidation, or local practices that result in long waits to vote on Election Day)?

Our local partners

VRD will connect local partners with a resource team to combat suppressive measures using public exposure/media coverage, advocacy efforts with local actors/decisionmakers (e.g. calls, letters, petitions), and, if necessary, litigation.
