A new voting law is in effect for all Missouri voters. Voters that cast a ballot in person at their polling place or during absentee voting will need to show a photo ID issued by the state of Missouri or federal government. Examples include a Missouri driver’s license, Missouri non-driver’s license, a U.S. passport, or military ID. If a voter does not have one of these IDs, they can still vote. This ballot will be put in a blue envelope to be brought back to the office, which will be counted if their signature matches the signature on their voter registration record.
For voters that cannot make it to their polling place on Election Day, absentee voting is available in the County Clerk’s office, 107 N. 4th St., Edina, Mo. 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Additionally, Saturday, Nov. 5, 8:00 a.m. to noon, and the Monday before the election, Nov. 7, 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
