18 2020 - Gov. Mike Parson ordered today that Municipal elections in Missouri will be held June 2 instead of the regular election date of April
7 as part of the state's effort to control the spread of the
coronavirus. The order directs local election authorities to maintain some dates for the election process, so voter registration, which closed March 11, will not be re-opened. And the date for declaring write-in candidacies will remain March 27; and only people who will be 18 or older by April 7 will be allowed to vote.
But other deadlines will be shifted closer to the election, with the last day to apply for an absentee ballot set at May 20, the deadline for casting in-person absentee ballots will be June 1, and military personnel must apply for a mail-in ballot by May 29.
Ballots already printed for the April 7 election may be used at the postponed date of June 2, the order states.
The election order does not address whether the partisan primaries scheduled for August will be delayed.
