The deadline to register to vote or update your current voter registration (if you have moved or have other changes) is July 6 for the Aug. 2 election.
Absentee voting begins six weeks before every election and is available to any registered Boone County voter that will be unable to make it to their polling place on Election Day due to their absence from Boone County, service as a poll worker, illness or physical disability, or participation in Missouri’s Safe at Home program.
You can vote an absentee ballot in Room 236 of the Boone County Government Center (corner of 9th and Ash in Columbia) until 5:00 p.m. on the day before the election.
If mailed an absentee ballot, they must be returned to the Clerk’s Office before the polls close at 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Persons that request an absentee ballot due to incapacity or confinement due to illness or physical disability do not need to have their ballot envelopes notarized. All other absentee ballot envelopes must be notarized. If you have a permanent disability, you can automatically receive an application for absentee ballot for every election by printing, signing, and returning a PDF application by mail to 801 E. Walnut, Room 236, Columbia MO 65201, by email to email@example.com, or by fax to (573) 886-4300.
