Voting Absentee/by Mail: November 3 General Election
Deadline October 21
Missouri's law is being challenged in court. We'll keep updating this page.
There are currently two ways for you to vote without going to your polling place: Absentee voting and mail-in voting.
Absentee voting requires an excuse. There are 7 excuses, including one specifically related to COVID-19, and a second one involving illnesses. Those are the only two excuses that do not require a notary for your ballot. When choosing one of the excuses, you are choosing the reason you expect will keep you from going to vote in person. Absentee ballot requests can be submitted via email, fax, mail, or in person. Once you get the ballot, you can bring in or mail in your absentee ballot.
Mail-in voting does not require an excuse but does require a notary. Mail-in ballot requests must be submitted via mail or in-person. Once you get the ballot, you can only mail in your mail-in ballot.
The ballot request forms do not need to be notarized, but, depending on your selection, your ballot may.

Step 1: Fill out the form
The button will take you to the ballot request form. The system will ask for your email so it can send you the completed form. Follow the instructions to complete your ballot request form. YOU MUST USE YOUR ACTUAL SIGNATURE. DO NOT TYPE IT IN. When you are done, the completed document will be emailed to you.
Which excuse to use: You should use the excuse that you expect will be true.
Your ballot will be sent to you by your election authority.
Step 2: email, fax, mail, or deliver to your election authority
Below is a spreadsheet of contact information for local election authorities. Those counties that have verified their emails for receiving absentee ballot requests are marked verified. We hope to keep adding to the verified list.
Absentee ballot requests can be emailed, faxed, mailed, or delivered.
Mail-in ballot requests must be mailed or delivered.
You must request your absentee ballot by 5:00 PM on the second Wednesday before the election.
