If you've never voted absentee, the process is simple!
You can vote absentee if you have contracted or are at risk for COVID, are "confined" due to illness or disability, will be out of town on election day, are restricted by a religious belief or practice, or will be working at the polls.
Vote absentee in person by going to the St. Louis County Board of Elections M-F between 8:00am and 4:30pm. Their address is 725 Northwest Plaza Dr., St. Ann, MO 63074.
Vote absentee by mail by simply going to the St. Louis County Board of Elections website and filling out the absentee ballot request! Click HERE for that link.
Remember to choose your party affiliation by filling in the appropriate bubble at the top.
Choose the reason why you are voting absentee. You do NOT need to get your ballot notarized if you are in one of the at-risk categories for COVID (i.e., you are 65+ or have a pre-existing condition that leaves you immunocompromised), or if you are "confined due to illness or disability" - even if that confinement is because of the pandemic. That means you should choose one of those options if you are able to. You can see them in the highlighted in the ballot application below.
You can return your application BY EMAIL to BOECAbsentee@stlouisco.com; BY FAX to 314-615-1998, BY MAIL to 725 Northwest Plaza Drive, St. Ann, MO 63074, OR IN PERSON at their offices.
That's it! Your ballot will be mailed to you.
