Nondriver License for Voting Purposes
On June 1, 2017, the Department of Revenue implemented the provisions of HB 1631 to issue one nondriver license at no cost to individuals who indicate they do not possess an acceptable form of personal identification to meet voter identification requirements.
If you do not have identification for voting as outlined on the Secretary of State’s website, you may request a nondriver license for voting purposes at a Missouri license office in your area.
To obtain a nondriver license for voting purposes at one of the Missouri license offices:

- Provide documents verifying:
- Full legal name, date of birth, place of birth (see acceptable documents);
- Social security number (verbally or by presenting card);
- Missouri residence and mailing address if different; and
- Sign a statement averring, under penalty of perjury, that you do not currently possess one of the other eligible documents for voting purposes.
