About This State

Hey, Show Me State, why don’t you show us what it looks like when all of you turn out to vote? Don't like that joke? Then don't tee it up for us like that. Also, you share a border with EIGHT states, meaning you have the most neighbors of any state in the country. Why not set a good example? It’s just neighborly. Here’s everything you need to know about Election Day in 2020.

Register To Vote

UPDATE

Governor Parson signed Senate Bill 631 into law on June 4, 2020, which authorizes mail-in ballots for the August 4, 2020 primary election and the November 3, 2020 general election to avoid the risk of contracting or transmitting COVID-19.

Registered Missouri voters can request mail-in ballots from their local election authority in person or by mail.

Mail-in ballots must be returned by mail in the provided envelope, with the statement on the envelope signed and witnessed by a notary. In order to be counted, mail-in ballots must be received by the election authority at or before the time fixed by law for the closing of the polls on Election Day (7:00 p.m.).
