Tomorrow, Oct. 30th, is the last day to apply for an absentee ballot

The last day to apply for a civilian absentee ballot is 5:00 PM on the Tuesday before the election (Oct. 30th) - please note that POSTMARKS DO NOT APPLY and that ORIGINAL APPLICATIONS must be received (no facsimiles or emails).

Absentee Ballot Application and Instructions

Don't wait-do it early! If you need to vote absentee and have the time, you can go to the Board of Elections, fill out the absentee ballot application, get a ballot and take it to the "voting room" they have set up. The official will check to make sure you are an eligible voter. You hand the person your ballot and bingo, you have voted. ALSO... you can take the absentee ballot you received in the mail to the same place and turn it in following the same procedure. 


Take it from a Lifelong Republican...

Lynn Schmidt: “I am a Never Trump former Republican. I live in Missouri where we have Senator McCaskill running against Josh Hawley. Josh is a Trump lackey. I will be voting for and even have donated money to several Democratic campaigns. As a mother of a child with a disability, I got off the Trump bandwagon when he made fun of the reporter with a disability. I was a delegate to the 2012 RNC but would not even attend our state convention if that meant supporting Trump. I am no longer a Republican if the G.O.P. is the Party of Trump. I am disappointed every day by our president. There are currently no checks and balances. That is what I am voting for, checks and balances.
