Absentee Ballots Now Available for November Election

I, Roberta Owens, County Clerk, wish to inform all registered voters that absentee ballots are now available for the 2016 November General Election.  Anyone needing to vote absentee because of illness or absent from the polls on Election Day may do one of the following:

1) Submit a request in writing by mail or fax and include: name, address, mailing address if different, signature, date of birth, and the last four digits of their social security number, party ballot.
2) Call the office for an absentee application.
3) Vote in person in the County Clerk’s office Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. along with identification ie: voter registration card, drivers license, utility bill, etc.
4) Go to County website at and print the absentee form, fill it out, then mail it in.

The November 8th election is a General Election.  Therefore it is not necessary to include a party preference.

The final day to mail an absentee ballot to a voter is Wednesday, November 2nd .   The final day to vote absentee in person is 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 7th in the County Clerk’s office.

The County Clerk’s office will be open Saturday November 5th from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for absentee voters.

If you have any questions, contact Roberta Owens at 660-564-2219 or submit a written request for an absentee ballot to:  PO Box 450, MO 64456-0450 or fax a request to 660-564-2432.
