1.  Download and print the application.  (The Jackson County Election Board has also provided this "no excuse" application for Jackson voters who do not live in KCMO.) 

2.  Complete it and mail, fax, or deliver it to your local election board

Tuesday November 3, 2020* - Your ballot must be received via USPS at your local election board.

1.  Complete your ballot and mail it ASAP.

2.  Your ballot envelope must be notarized.  Note that most banks will provide free notary services for ballots.  Here is a list of notaries provided by the State of Missouri; some may be able to notarize your envelope electronically. 

Other means to get your ballot notarized:

Curbside Notary - CurbsideKC is partnering with your favorite local coffee shops and restaurants to bring you free Curbside Notary events open to all Missouri registered voters of any political party.


KC Parks Community Centers are offering FREE Notary service to Kansas City, Missouri residents. There will be Certified Staff at ALL KC Parks Community Centers ready to help residents get their mail-in and qualified absentee ballots notarized. This FREE service will be available Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-Noon and 3-5 p.m. at ALL ten KC Parks Community Centers and on Saturday “by appointment only” at Gregg/Klice and Southeast Community Centers.

3. YOU MUST MAIL YOUR ballot.  You will not be able to relinquish your ballot on election day and will not be able to vote at your polling place.

4.  Adding appropriate first-class postage to your notarized ballot forces the USPS to treat your ballot as first-class mail instead of bulk mail.

*Due to Trump's meddling with the USPS, we STRONGLY recommend mailing both ballot application and your completed ballot at least 14 days before these deadlines, sooner if at all possible..
