How do I vote absentee vote? Does Missouri have "No Excuse Absentee Voting"?

Missouri now has two (2) ways to vote prior to Election Day. The first option is absentee voting with an excuse that begins 6 weeks prior to Election Day and can be done in-person or via mail.  The second option is no-excuse absentee voting and can only be done in-person.

Jefferson County residents who will not be able to go to their polling place on election day may vote absentee beginning six weeks prior to an election. Voters may request absentee with excuse ballots from the County Clerk/Election Authority in person, by email or by fax. A parent or adult child of a registered voter may complete an absentee ballot application on behalf of the voter who wishes to vote absentee.

Absentee ballot applications must be sent to this office by the deadline to be valid. This deadline is the 2nd Wednesday before the election.
