New 2020 Voting Options: Applications for Absentee and Mail-in Ballots Available

The Missouri General Assembly has made some changes in election laws this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the August primary and November elections, Missouri voters will be eligible to cast ballots by mail with notarization of the ballot envelope, and voters in at-risk categories for contracting or transmitting COVID-19 are eligible to vote by absentee ballot without obtaining notarization. People may still vote by absentee ballot if they will be absent from the election jurisdiction on election day, but they must have the envelope notarized before submitting their vote.

Applications for absentee or mail-in ballots are now ready for the August 4 primary election. Registered voters may request an application either in person or by mail. The deadline for requests by mail is July 22 at 5:00 p.m. Mail-in ballots must be returned by mail to the election authority in time for its receipt by 7 p.m. on election day. Absentee ballots may be returned either by mail or in person. For more information on new voting options check out the Secretary of State website.
