Vote August 4!
The primary election is Tuesday, August 4!
Wondering where your polling place is? The St. Louis County Board of Elections has a polling place lookup tool, which you can access HERE.
Polling locations are open from 6am-7pm on Tuesday, August 4.
Voting absentee begins June 23
We are living in a historic time, and you shouldn’t have to choose between your health and your vote. Certain categories of people can vote “absentee” – like those who will be away from the County on August 4, will be employed as an election authority on election day or are incapacitated or caring for someone who is incapacitated. (Check the link below for the full list of people who can vote absentee.)
One of those categories is people who are confined “due to illness,” and includes people who are “primarily responsible for the physical care of a person who is … confined due to illness or disability.” (See the statute HERE.) Our County Executive, Dr. Sam Page, has asked that the Secretary of State interpret that section broadly, allowing for absentee voting by mail for all registered voters during these elections in order to protect public health.
The St. Louis County Board of Elections has already sent absentee ballot applications to all registered voters over age 60; if you have received an absentee ballot application and want to vote absentee, just fill out the application and return it. An absentee ballot will be sent to you before the election. The application is not a ballot, and filling it out will not mean you have voted in the election.
If you did not receive an absentee ballot application, you can request one from the Board of Elections. They have not yet posted a ballot application for the August 4 primary, but you can request one by emailing BOECAbsentee@stlouisco.com.
You can vote absentee beginning June 23, and can do so in person at 725 Northwest Plaza Dr., St. Ann, MO. between 8:00-4:30pm Monday-Friday. Absentee in-office voting ends Monday, August 3 at 5:00pm (the Election Board will be open 1/2 hour later).

What Identification Do I Need?
If you are a registered voter, you can vote!
Use ANY of the following forms of ID:
An ID issued by the federal government, the state of Missouri, an agency of the state or a local election authority (like a drivers license, Missouri non-driver’s license, passport, or Military ID)
A voter registration card, a student ID from a Missouri university, college, vocation or technical school
A utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or government check – or other government document showing your name and address
Forget your purse? You can still vote by casting a provisional ballot. If your signature matches the signature on the voter registry, your vote will still be counted!
