Missouri Governor Mike Parson issued an executive order on March 18 moving the municipal elections.  The executive order follows a state of emergency declaration in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and a request from Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft.

Parson’s executive order declares that ballots already printed for the April 7 election may be used at the postponed date of June 2. Voters who have attained the age of 18 by April 7 will be allowed to cast a ballot. 

Voter registration for the April 7 election, which ended March 11, remains closed. The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot is now May 20. In-person absentee ballots may now be cast until 5 p.m. on June 1. To request an absentee ballot, click here.

According to the Secretary of State, anyone who is 18 by April 7 will be allowed to vote, but anyone who turns 18 between April 8 and June 2 will not be allowed to vote.
