Time off for voting

Any person entitled to vote at any election held within this state shall, on the day of such election, be entitled to absent himself from any services or employment in which he is then engaged or employed, for a period of three hours between the time of opening and the time of closing the polls for the purpose of voting, and any such absence for such purpose shall not be reason for the discharge of or the threat to discharge any such person from such services or employment; and such employee, if he votes, shall not, because of so absenting himself, be liable to any penalty or discipline, nor shall any deduction be made on account of such absence from his usual salary or wages; provided, however, that request shall be made for such leave of absence prior to the day of election, and provided further, that this section shall not apply to a voter on the day of election if there are three successive hours while the polls are open in which he is not in the service of his employer.

How can I find my polling location?

If you do not know where your polling place is,you can use www.sos.mo.gov. Voters from Boone and St. Charles County will be redirected to their respective county websites. If you have a non-standard address such as rural route, you will need to contact your Local Election Authority instead of using this lookup. If you have any issues or questions, please contact your County Clerk

Acceptable IDs to Vote

  • Registered voters need to present ONLY ONE of the following types of ID (examples only):
  • 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;

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.
