Instructions from the Voice of the Poor Committee on Voting by Mail

Dear Fellow Vincentian,
Due to the risk of exposure to COVID-19, the Missouri legislature approved new vote by mail options for 2020. Click here to find the eligibility requirements for absentee and mail-in voting.
Your application for a ballot must be received by your election authority (Board of Elections or county clerk) by July 22 at 5:00 p.m. for the August 4 election. The actual ballot must be received by the election authority at or before 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Click here for a list of election authorities for all Missouri counties in the St. Louis area.
Even though your individual election authority will have its own application, you can use the attached application (which was obtained from the Secretary of State’s website) to request an absentee or mail-in ballot. If your ballot must be notarized, you can call your financial institution, your election authority or the League of Women Voters for help in finding a notary.
If you are not comfortable voting in-person, the VOP Committee urges you to vote for Medicaid Expansion by mail. Please pass this information along to family, friends, and fellow Vincentians that do not have access to email.
The Voice of the Poor (VOP) Committee urges you to vote YES on Amendment 2. Click here for a fact sheet listing 6 reasons Medicaid Expansion benefits Missouri. 
If you have any questions, please call me at 314-302-0595.
Sincerely,
Dianne Marshak
Voice of the Poor Committee Chairperson
