This story was updated at 7:40 a.m. to correct the types of identification accepted at polling places in Missouri.

  • Election officials are expecting record turnout, so be prepared to wait. Be prepared with your ID in your hand when you get to the front of the line .
  • A voter registration card, driver's license, Missouri ID, bank statement, utility bill, government ID, passport or an MU ID are all acceptable if they show the name and address of the voter. Click here for a full list of IDs accepted in Missouri.
  • Don't wear any campaign T-shirts, including ones with the image of a candidate's face. Campaigning and exit polls are not allowed within 25 feet of the polling place.
  • Polls in Missouri open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Those in line by 7 p.m. will be allowed to vote.
  • To find your polling place, go to the secretary of state's Web site.

Don't carry campaign literature people give you into your polling place as is happening I know at some places around town.

Put it into your purse or in your pocket.
