The County Clerk is the election authority for the county and its political subdivisions, and is responsible for conducting all public elections. We are governed by the Revised Statues of Missouri Chapter 115 Election Laws. Regular elections are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in April, August and November. Bond elections may be held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in February but no other issue shall be included on the ballot for such election. Two notices of the polling locations and sample ballots are published in the local newspaper two weeks prior to each election. We accept Candidate Filing for county offices beginning the last Tuesday in February. Absentee voting begins on the sixth Tuesday prior to each election.

Absentee voting is provided to registered voters who will be prevented from going to the polls on election day due to absence, confinement due to an illness or disability, members of the armed forces while in active service or persons incarcerated who have retained their voting privileges.
