Vote-By-Mail and Absentee Voting

The Missouri Supreme Court ruled on June 23 that all Missouri voters are eligible to vote by mail in the 2020 elections and that the ballots do not need to be notarized. Unlike absentee voting, you do NOT need to state a reason for voting by mail.

In order to successfully vote by mail, you must fill out this application and mail it to the St. Louis County Board of Elections. Contact info for the Board can be found below.

The image above is from the Missouri Voter Protection Coalition. It explains how to determine if you are eligible to vote absentee versus vote by mail, how to request absentee and vote-by-mail ballots, and how to submit absentee and vote-by-mail ballots. It also provides important deadlines.
Please note, however, this was created before the Supreme Court's ruling. You DO NOT have to have your ballot notarized. 
The deadline to request vote-by-mail and absentee ballots is July 22. 
The ballots must be received by 7:00 PM on August 4.

Absentee Voting

Registered voters who expect to be prevented from going to their polling place on Election Day may vote absentee beginning six weeks prior to an election.  

 

For the August 4 primary, absentee voting will begin June 23.

Medicaid Expansion (Amendment 2)

Yes or No

The amendment will require the state to request maximum federal funding of the Medicaid expansion, and will not have a direct impact on taxes.

If passed, a projected 230,000 additional Missourians ages 19 through 64 will be covered, using income guidelines at or below 138% of the federal poverty level, under the Affordable Care Act. The new income guidelines would be $17,608 for an individual and $36,156 for a household of four.

The state would be prohibited from adding more restrictions or requirements for qualification than already exist for people to qualify for Medicaid.

According to Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft, if passed, the initiative is expected to have a one-time cost to the state of about $6.4 million dollars. The yearly net fiscal impact by 2026 is unknown, but the office's projections include a range of a cost to the state of $200 million to a savings to the state of $1 billion. 

Prop C

Yes or No

An amendment to the St. Louis County Charter. A "yes" vote is a vote to:

 
  • Provide reasons for vacancy in the office of County Executive and procedures for filling such vacancy

  • Combine functions of the Departments of Transportation and Public Works

  • Re-state functions and powers of the Director of Public Health.

  • Re-state qualifications for the Director of Parks, Public Health, and Transportation and Public Works

  • Provide for up to four Boards of Equalization
