A voter must vote at the poll to which he has been assigned. If a voter has moved within Jefferson County, he may change his address at any time, including the day of the election. However, if a voter has moved within Jefferson County and has not updated his voting information before the day of the election, then the voter may be instructed to travel to the new poll location in order to cast a ballot. Missouri law requires a voter to vote at a poll based on their current address, not the old address.
If you are new to Jefferson County, Missouri, you must have registered to vote in Jefferson County before the 4th Wednesday before the election. If you have failed to do so you may or may not be entitled to a provisional ballot. (If a voter moves from one Missouri county to another Missouri county they MUST re-register to vote in the new county.)
The answer depends on you. If we have your correct/current address and name on file with our office, then the wait time will be minimal. If you have failed to keep this information current with us then you will be directed to the Help Desk where the election office will be contacted in order to resolve the problem. Voters who are sent to the Help Desk should expect to wait.
Expected wait times (these are our customer service goals):
The polls throughout Missouri open promptly at 6 am and close precisely at 7 pm. All voters standing in line at 7 pm will be allowed to cast a ballot.
Unfortunately no, our office is not equipped to provide transportation for voters. We suggest you contact one of the local political parties or candidates.
