New Voter Identification Cards and Voter Information Guides

The Cape Girardeau County Clerk’s Office will mail new 2020-21 Voter Identification Cards to Cape Girardeau County registered voters within the next few days in conjunction with canvassing the voter rolls as required by state and federal laws. The 5 ½ inch by 8 ½ inch identification cards are perforated to fold to wallet size.

The new identification card replaces all previously issued cards and lists your name, address, polling place, precinct, and the units of government in which you are entitled to vote. Please carefully check your address and spelling of your name on the card and contact the County Clerk’s Office if there are errors. If you have moved or changed your name you must update your voter registration record.

Voter Information Guides will also be mailed to each household in Cape Girardeau County following the Voter Identification Card mailing.  The guide provides detailed information regarding voter registration and elections as well as a list of 2020 election dates.

Registered voters in Cape Girardeau County who do not receive a new Voter Identification Card and/or voter guide by the first week in February should contact the County Clerk’s Office at (573)243-3547.
