ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Election day is Tuesday and a number of big issues are on the ballot.
Here is everything you need to know before you vote.
Finding your polling place
To find your polling place, check out the polling place locator at Voting.org. You can also find your polling place at the Missouri Voter Outreach Center or the Illinois State Board of Election website.
Your election information is based on where you live in your state. To find your polling place, you’ll need to provide your current address.
Once that is finished, your polling location will be listed along with the date of the election and the deadline for voting registration. The deadline to register for the election in Missouri was in October.
You can also view the candidates and issues, learn about upcoming elections and view your current districts.
In Missouri, you are entitled to three hours off work to vote, in Illinois it is two hours.

Voters will need to bring a form of ID to the polling place.
The first group of ID options includes any of the following:
