SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Missouri's August primary election is a week from Tuesday  (Aug. 5) and if you won't be in your county on election day, you still have time to vote by absentee ballot.

In Greene County, County Clerk Richard Struckhoff’s office in the Greene County courthouse will be open Saturday, August 2nd, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for absentee voting.

The deadline for casting an absentee ballot in person at the clerk’s office is 5:00 p.m. on the day before the election.

If you are voting absentee by mail, Struckhoff says you  need to  make sure the written request for a ballot arrives at the clerk’s office by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 30th, in order to be processed. 

A reminder - you will be asked if you want a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Constitution or Issues Only ballot.

State laws restrict the use of absentee voting to those with legal reasons, such as absence from the county on election day or physical incapacity.

See the candidates and issues on the Aug. 5 ballot in Greene County.  

Outside of Greene County, contact the County Clerk in your county for specific information about absentee voting and a sample ballot.
