IMPORTANT INFO FOR ST. LOUIS VOTERS NOVEMBER 8, 2022 MIDTERM ELECTION
• Voter registration deadline for Nov. 8 midterms is October 12
• Check your voter registration and/or register online at the Missouri Secretary of State’s website.
• St. Louis City residents can also register to vote and/or update their registration (name, address, etc.) at the City of St. Louis Board of Elections (300 N. Tucker Blvd, 63101) or any St. Louis Public Library location.
- NOTE: Even after the deadline for NEW voter registration has passed, because of recent changes in Missouri election laws, a Missouri registered voter CAN change their address to another Missouri voting jurisdiction until the day before the election online, at the Board of Elections, or any SLPL location.

On election day (Nov. 8), this can be done at the Board of Elections office; the voter will need to vote there as well.

2022 MIDTERM ELECTION
- View your sample ballot from the St. Louis City Election Board here.
- Bring an acceptable form of identification. Under current law (New - effective late August 2022), one of the following is required to vote a “normal” ballot:
- A non-expired Missouri driver or non-driver license;
- A non-expired military ID, including a veteran’s ID card;
- A non-expired United States passport; or
- Another photo ID issued by the United States or the state of Missouri which is either not expired or expired after November 3, 2020 (the date of the most recent general election).
- If a voter does NOT have the State of Missouri or Federally issued photo ID, they can still vote at the voter’s polling place by casting a NO ID Provisional Ballot on Election Day. After Election Day, a bipartisan team of election judges will compare the signature on the voter’s provisional ballot envelope to their voter registration signature on file at the Election Board. If the signature matches, the vote will count.
- Vote in person: November 8 from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. at your assigned polling place (check your Election Notice card from the Board of Elections, or look it up here) or at any of the following twelve locations. NOTE: If you are in line by 7 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.
