What do I need to bring with me to vote?

All voters must bring a government-issued ID to the polls in order to vote.

A driver’s license will work at most locations, but requirements for other forms of ID vary by state. Here’s what you need to know. If you want additional information, click on your county to see its official page on voter ID requirements.

If you are registered to vote in a Missouri county — Clay County, Jackson County or Platte County— you need to bring one form of identification to the polls: a photo ID or a non-photo ID.

Acceptable photo IDs include:

  • A current driver’s license
  • A passport
  • A student ID from a Missouri institute of higher education

A non-photo ID includes:

  • A utility bill
  • A bank statement
  • A paycheck 
  • A government-issued document showing that you live in the county in which you are registered to vote

Note: Your driver’s license or passport does not have to show a local address.

If you are registered to vote in a Kansas county — Johnson or Wyandotte — you must have a photo ID with you when you got to the polls.

Your photo ID may be:

  • A driver’s license
  • A state ID
  • A passport
  • A student ID
  • A U.S. military ID
  • A concealed carry license
