Ways to Vote

Before You Vote – Prepare Yourself

Three Options for Voting in Missouri:

In-Person Voting on Election Day

If you are registered here in Greene County, you can choose to vote at either any of the four Central Polling Locations in Springfield, such as the MSU Welcome Center OR at the polling location noted on your Voter ID card.

Find your Missouri voting location

Polls are open 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Bring a Missouri state-issued ID (Diver’s or Non-Driver’s license) or federal ID (passport or military ID). Note: if you cannot provide identification when you vote, you can still cast your ballot as a “provisional ballot,” and provide ID later.

Springfield/Greene County Central Polling Locations
  • Missouri State University, MSU Welcome Center
  • City Utilities Transfer Center, 211 N. Main
  • Cox South, 3801 S. National
  • Mercy Hospital, 1235 E. Cherokee

Absentee Voting

If you cannot vote in-person on Election Day in the county in which you are registered , you can vote absentee.
