All voters have the opportunity to vote a correct ballot. If a mistake is made by the voter at the poll, the voter should notify the election judges immediately. The judge will take the original ballot and spoil the ballot. The judge will then hand the voter a new ballot. In Missouri. voters have a ’Second Chance Voting’ opportunity.
Note: If the voter has already placed the ballot into the black ballot box and then approaches the election judges about a possible error on his ballot or change of mind, the judges are not allowed to retrieve the ballot from the box per Missouri law. Therefore, all voters are encouraged to inspect their ballot carefully before casting the ballot.
If a voter has received an absentee ballot and makes a mistake, the voter should contact our office immediately. 636-797-5486
