Missouri voters can find unbiased information on candidates and ballot issues at VOTE411.org.
The Voters Guide, produced by volunteers with the League of Women Voters of Metro St. Louis and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, allows Missouri voters to type in their address to see the races on their ballots, compare candidates’ positions side-by-side, and read a summary of ballot initiatives, including Amendments 1 and 3.
ABSENTEE, MAIL-IN BALLOTS
More than 105,000 voters in St. Louis County alone have requested absentee ballots for the Nov. 3 election. Voters over 65 or with an underlying condition the CDC says are at higher risk of complications can use a new excuse for absentee voting that doesn’t require a notary.
Many absentee voters and those using new “mail-in ballots” must have the ballot envelope notarized. Free notary services are available at the League office at 8706 Manchester Rd., Suite 104, in Brentwood. A list of other free notaries can be found at notaryhub.movpc.org.
