St. Louis, MO (KTRS) The state’s new photo I.D. law is being put to the test today in St. Louis.
A special election is being held in the city’s 28th ward to fill the aldermanic seat vacated by Mayor Lyda Krewson. A special election on June 20th in southeast Missouri was the first since the photo ID law took effect.
There are provisions for registered voters who weren’t able to get state-issued i.d in time for today’s election. You can bring a student ID, a paycheck, or a utility bill. If that’s the case, you will have to sign a statement acknowledging that you are who you say you are.
Once voters are cleared to cast their vote the will have four candidates to choose from on the ballot. Those candidates are Heather Navarro, Celeste Vossmeyer, Steven Roberts, and Jerome Bauer.
The polls close at 7 p.m.
