Voters in Missouri are picking a new U.S. Senator and weighing in on recreational marijuana. This is also an important election in St. Louis County and the City of St. Louis, where leaders are hoping for a large midterm turnout.

When/where to vote in Missouri

Polls will be open for in-person voting from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8. Before you go, make sure to verify your voter registration status and find your designated polling location before Nov. 8 to avoid any unexpected issues. 

To cast your ballot on Election Day, Missouri law now requires you to show an acceptable form of photo identification. If you’re a registered voter but don’t bring a photo ID with you, you may cast a provisional ballot instead. Provisional ballots will be only counted if you return later that day with an ID or if election officials verify your signature. 

Get a ride to vote

As part of its 2022 LyftUp Voting Access Program, Lyft announced it would offer free and discounted rides across the country on Election Day. 

Can’t make it to the polls on Election Day? 

Mailed or faxed absentee ballot requests must be received by your county clerk’s office by 5 p.m. Oct. 26. Completed ballots must be received by your local election authority on Election Day. 

Missouri voters can cast a no-excuse, in-person absentee ballot between Oct. 25 and Nov. 7 at a location designated by their local election authority. Voters must show a government-issued photo ID.
