How do I vote? It's my first time.

In order to vote, an individual must make sure that they are in fact a registered voter. The voter must then go to the assigned polling location. The County Clerk’s office will send out a courtesy reminder card with the polling location and the date of the election immediately preceding any election.

Upon arrival at the proper polling location, an election judge will ask the voter to present a form of identification as required per Missouri law. Chapter 115.427 requires only one of the following:

  • ID issued by the federal government, or the state of Missouri
  • Driver’s license or state identification card issued by another state

If you do not possess any of these forms of identification, you may still cast a ballot if two supervising election judges, one from each major political party, attest they know you. Once a voter has shown the proper form of identification, the voter will be asked to verify that the address we have on file is correct/current in the precinct roster. The voter will indicate that the information is correct by signing his/her name.
