The Moniteau County Clerk's Office has publicized the voter registration deadline, as well as the dates during which one may turn in an absentee ballot, for the April 6 municipal election.
The deadline to be a registered voter and eligible to vote in the April 6, 2021 General Municipal Election is Wednesday, March 10. New residents to the county or first time registrants must file their voter registration application by this deadline. Voter registration may be completed in the County Clerk's office during the hours of 8 a.m. to noon and 12:30-4:30 p.m. Voters who have had a change of address in the county will need to update their new physical address in order to keep their voter registration active. Failure to keep addresses current will result in the voter being removed after two general elections have passed.
Absentee ballots are available for voters who may be out of the county on election day, or voters who are confined to their homes due to illness or physical disability and cannot go the polls on election day. Applicant should state their name, address at which they are registered, reason for voting an absentee ballot, and the address to which the ballot is to be mailed. A guardian or relative within the second degree may apply on behalf of a voter, but the relative or guardian must appear in person at the County Clerk's Office to make that absentee application request. The last day absentee ballots may be mailed is Wednesday, March 24, and the last day they may be accepted in person is April 5.
Voting in person at the office of the County Clerk will continue through April 6. The office will also be open for voting from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 3.
