Applications for absentee voting in the Feb. 7 presidential primary are being accepted through Feb. 6 at the Cole County Clerk's Office.
Those who would like to make applications for family members in the armed forces, college or confined to the home due to illness or physical disability should do so, as soon as possible, so the ballots have ample time to get back to the clerk's office by Feb. 7.
All ballots mailed out by the clerk must be received by 7 p.m. on election day.
The last day to mail out absentee ballots is Feb. 1.
The clerk's office will be open on Saturday, Feb. 4, from 8 a.m. to noon for those wishing to vote absentee.
The deadline to cast an absentee ballot in the clerk's office is 5 p.m. Feb. 6.
If you know you will be out of town on election day, contact the clerk's office about getting an absentee ballot at (573) 634-9101.
