Make your plan to vote safely in Missouri

Nobody should have to risk their health to cast their ballot.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and delays with the U.S. Postal Service, here are our recommendations for voting safely while making sure your vote is counted!

Election Information

General Election: Tuesday, Nov. 3

Missouri voter registration deadline: Wednesday, Oct. 7

Absentee ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day to be counted

Make Your Plan to Vote

Vote In Person Absentee
  1. The safest way to vote in person is before November 3.
  2. Bring your ID (driver license, military ID, or a current utility bill, pay stub or government check with your name and address; see a full list here) and wear a mask.
  3. In-person absentee voting is available at your Local Election Authority (or a satellite site, if available) from September 22 through 5:00 p.m. on November 2.
  4. If you have any issues, contact the nonpartisan Election Protection Hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE — save this number in your phone ahead of time just in case!
Vote In Person on Election Day
  1. Find your polling place.
  2. Decide what time you're going. Polls are open from 6:00 a.m. through 7:00 p.m. on November 3.
  3. Decide how you're going to get there. Will you walk, bike, drive, or take public transportation?
  4. Bring your ID (driver license, military ID, or a current utility bill, pay stub or government check with your name and address; see a full list here) and wear a mask.
  5. If you are in line by 7:00 p.m., stay in line. You have the right to vote!
  6. If you have any issues, contact the nonpartisan Election Protection Hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE — save this number in your phone ahead of time just in case!
Vote Absentee By Mail
  1. Request your absentee ballotASAP.
    • If applicable, choose option 2 (confined due to illness or disability) or option 7 (65+ or higher risk for COVID-19). All other options require a notary. 
  2. When you get your ballot, fill it out (including the envelope) and put it in the mail ASAP — by October 20. You want to ensure your ballot is received by Election Day.
  3. If your ballot doesn't arrive in time or if you don't mail it by October 20, you or a close family member can drop it off at your Local Election Authority no later than 7:00 p.m. on November 3.

If you change your mind or make a mistake on your ballot, bring it with you to the polls on Election Day. You'll give it to election workers, who will "spoil" it and give you a regular ballot to cast.
