Absentee or Mail-In Voting Options

You must first request an absentee or mail-in ballot using the form linked above by October 21, 2020. You will then receive your official election ballot in the mail to be returned.

OPTION 1: Vote-by-Mail Absentee with qualified reason

If you are unable cast your ballot at your polling location because you are out of town, incapacitated, religious belief, or you are a COVID-19 at-risk voter, you can absentee vote.

You do not need a notary if you meet the “incapacitated” or the “at risk for COVID-19” reason listed on the application. All remaining absentee reasons do require notarization.

OPTION 2: Vote In-Person Absentee with Qualified Reason

The main difference between voting-in-person through absentee voting and voting by mail is that the in-person absentee voters do not need to find a notary to confirm their identity as the actual person casting the requested ballot in-person. The voter’s identity is confirmed in the same manner as a voter being checked in on Election Day by an election judge.

To vote in-person absentee in Greene County, stop by the Elections Center on 1126 North Boonville between 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday – Friday.

In-person absentee voting will also be open for Greene County voters on Saturday, October 24 from 9 a.m.–1 p.m. and Saturday, October 31 from 9 a.m.–4 p.m.

OPTION 3: No Excuse Vote-by-Mail

This year only, every registered Missouri voter is eligible to cast their ballot by mail. If you do not want to vote in person due to concerns about contracting COVID-19 or other reason, you can use the Mail-in Voting option.

All mail-in ballots must be notarized, without exception.
