Polling places will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day.

If you are in line by 7 p.m., you are allowed to cast your vote, even after the polls close.

Where you vote depends on where you live. Find your polling place online through Missouri's voter outreach center.

What do I bring to the polling place?

Any acceptable form of ID. Currently, that includes photo IDs, like Missouri driver's licenses, as well as nonphoto IDs like copies of a current utility bill, bank statement, or a government document containing your name and address.

If you are a registered voter but do not have an acceptable ID, you can still cast a provisional ballot that will be counted if your signature on it matches the signature on your voter registration form.

Top election officials have said the vast majority of those provisional ballots have been counted in recent elections.
