Ways to Register to Vote

If you have come to Missouri State from somewhere else in the state (or in the country), you can register to vote here in Springfield - Greene County as a student.

As long as you have a current Missouri Diver’s or Non-Driver’s license (or Driver’s Permit), or a federal ID (passport or military ID), you can register to vote wherever you currently live in the U.S. Residence halls are valid addresses to use, as long as you’re careful to list the street address and your room number, not the residence hall name.
