Voters in Kansas City North line up early on August 2 to vote at Northland Cathedral.

Locations around the Kansas City metro, in both Kansas and Missouri. Here’s a list of places you can go to vote, hours for early voting, and what you’ll need to bring to cast a ballot.

Early, in-person voting has started around the Kansas City area, with some new rules on the Missouri side of the metro.

This is the first year Missouri is offering no-excuse absentee voting because of a new state law that went into effect in late August.

Additionally, the new law requires Missouri voters to present photo identification in order to vote in advance or on Election Day. Kansas also requires photo identification in order to vote.

Missouri accepts the following forms of photo identification:

  • Non-expired Missouri driver’s license
  • State-issued ID
  • Non-expired U.S. passport
  • Military photo ID

Kansas accepts the following forms of photo identification:

  • Driver’s license or ID card issued by the state of Kansas or another state
  • U.S. passport
  • U.S. military ID
  • ID card issued by a Native American tribe
  • Employee badge or ID from a government agency
  • Student ID card from a postsecondary Kansas school
  • Concealed carry license issued by Kansas or another state
  • Public assistance ID card
