Per House Bill 1878 (commonly known as the Election Integrity Law), all Missouri residents must now present a valid, state-issued photo ID at the polls when voting. Photo ID can be acquired in multiple ways, including:

  • The Missouri Department of Revenue, through the license offices throughout the state, provides one (1) nondriver license at no charge to Missourians who wish to obtain a photo ID for voting purposes (and do not already have one). Call 573-526-VOTE (8683) or visit for more info.
  • The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Bureau of Vital Records, can provide one (1) free exempt copy of a certified Missouri birth certificate to an individual seeking to obtain one (1) free nondriver’s license in order to vote in Missouri if the applicant does not already have a current nondriver’s license or current driver’s license. Call (573) 751-6387 or email for more info.
  • The Missouri Secretary of State will help you obtain official documents needed to get a Missouri nondriver license. Examples include birth certificate; marriage license; adoption decree; U.S. Department of State naturalization papers; or court order changing one's name. They will pay for official documents from other states or the federal government.

If you do not have a Photo ID, the Missouri Secretary of State's office can help you obtain the documents you need. You can request help at You can also contact the Secretary of State's office by calling toll free at (866) 868-3245, or emailing them at
