YOUR Vote Counts!

Any citizen of the United States who is a resident of the State of Missouri and is 17-1/2 years of age may register to vote, unless: 1) You have been convicted of a felony and are under the supervision of the Department of Corrections. 2) You have been assigned a full guardianship by the court, which does not specifically grant you the right to vote.

Missouri law mandates that registered voters with incapacity or confinement due to illness or physical disability must be given the opportunity to join the Permanently Disabled Voting List so that they may vote at home by absentee ballot for every election. You can join the Permanently Disabled Voting list simply by notifying your County Clerk’s office and asking to be placed on the Permanently Disabled Voting List. The County Clerk office can provide a ‘Notice of Permanent Disability’ form so that you may fill it out and mail it to your local County Clerk.

Once you are on the Permanently Disabled Voting List, you will receive a Request for Absentee Ballot in the mail from your County Clerk for each election. Complete and return this Request to the local County Clerk’s office in order to receive an Absentee Ballot which you can use to vote from your home. Once your local County Clerk receives your signed Absentee Ballot Request, they will mail you an Absentee Ballot to fill out at home. You may return your Absentee Ballot to the County Clerk by mail or in person.

October 7, 2015 is the last day to register to be eligible to vote in the November 3, 2015 elections. Let YOUR voice be heard!
