Remember Your Voter ID!

Missouri and Kansas have different laws about what type of voter identification is required to vote. Prepare to vote now so you’ll be ready on November 6th.


No photo ID required. You can use any of the following that shows you reside at your current voting address:

  • ID issued by the Federal Government, state of Missouri, or a local election authority
  • ID issued by a Missouri institution (public or private) of higher education, including a university, college, vocational and technical school
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government document that contains the name and address of the voter
  • Driver’s license or state identification card issued by another state

Kansas voters must show photographic identification when casting a vote in person. If the photo ID has an expiration date on it, the ID must not have expired at the time of voting. An acceptable photo ID does not have to have an expiration date on the document in order to be valid. Persons age 65 or older may use expired photo ID documents.

Acceptable forms of photo ID are:

  • A driver’s license or nondriver’s identification card issued by Kansas or by another state or district of the United States
  • A concealed carry of handgun license issued by Kansas or a concealed carry of handgun or weapon license issued by another state or district of the United States
  • A United States passport
  • An employee badge or identification document issued by a municipal, county, state, or federal government office
  • A military identification document issued by the United States
  • A student identification card issued by an accredited postsecondary institution of education in the state of Kansas
  • A public assistance identification card issued by a municipal, county, state or federal government office
  • An identification card issued by an Indian tribe
