Are you registered to vote, or do you need to?
First, in Missouri, you are required to be registered BEFORE the election. The registration deadline for the November 8th, 2022, election is October 12th, 2022.
Not sure if you’re registered. You can check that out on the Jackson County Election Board (JCEB) website here. https://jcebmo.org/voter-information/ Scroll to the JCEB Voter ID Lookup.
Don’t forget to check your address on the site so you don’t have any surprises later. If you need more information on registering to vote, go here https://www.jacksongov.org/Services/Register-to-Vote
The Missouri law now requires that voters present a government-issued photo ID to vote.
Note, as of this writing, 9/2/2022, a case is pending to repeal this. It’s better to be prepared, so please keep reading. If you don’t provide a government-issued photo ID, your ballot will be considered provisional. It will only be counted if elections officials can verify your signature based on voter records.
So what kind of id is going to be accepted? Non-expired Missouri driver or non-driver license, Non expired military ID, including a veteran’s ID card, Non expired United States Passport, or another photo ID issued by the United States or the state of Missouri which is not expired.
If you don’t have any of those IDs, you might be able to get a free photo ID. Check out this link to see how https://www.sos.mo.gov/voterid.
