JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri voters who want an absentee ballot mailed to them must submit their application by Wednesday.
To be sent an absentee ballot, voters must deliver a request to their county clerk or local election authority by 5 p.m. People can still vote in person by absentee ballot at their local election authority through Monday.
Missourians who want to vote by absentee ballots must cite a reason they cannot make it to the polls on the Election Day. Valid reasons include travel, illness and religious beliefs.
Local election authorities must receive completed absentee ballots by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted.
