If I vote absentee, will it count? I heard it doesn't count!

This is an absentee voting myth!

Under Missouri law, all ballots, including those cast at the poll and those cast by absentee are counted. It does not matter if the election is close or not, all absentee ballots are counted in every election. Voters sometimes believe that absentee ballots are only counted if they might determine the outcome.

Again, all ballots are counted in every election.
