Document: Missouri Absentee Ballot Request Form


Several Mid-Missouri county clerk offices are making special accommodations to help residents who have COVID-19 or have been in close contact with a positive case vote.

The Osage County Clerk's Office will be open Saturday for curbside voting for people who have tested positive for COVID-19.

County officials said they have received calls about residents who are quarantined due to contracting COVID-19 or being a close contact of a positive case.

Osage County residents who are quarantined or self-isolating for those reasons will be allowed to vote at the Osage County Annex building, 205 E. Main St. in Linn, if they have not been able to vote yet.

Voters should stay in their vehicles, wear a mask and call the Osage County Clerk's Office at 573-897-2139. A volunteer will be available at the annex building to assist voters 8 a.m.-noon Saturday.

County officials urge close contacts or those diagnosed with COVID-19 not to go to their polling location on Election Day, which is Tuesday.

The Miller County Clerk's Office is offering curbside and home visit options for voters in quarantine or who have tested positive for COVID-19.

Voters can call the county clerk at 573-369-1910 to schedule an appointment for curbside absentee voting at the Miller County Courthouse at 2001 Missouri 52 in Tuscumbia. Curbside voting will be available today and Monday, as well as 8 a.m.-noon Saturday.

Voters should park on the side of the courthouse in the voter parking spots and stay in their vehicles, county officials said.

The Miller County Clerk's Office will also have individuals who will visit residents who have COVID-19 or are in quarantine at their homes on Election Day to ensure those residents vote. Miller County residents who want to schedule a house visit should call the county clerk's office.

After receiving several calls from residents with COVID-19 or in quarantine, the Maries County Clerk's Office will make house visits between today and Monday to help those people vote.

"They could come out and vote curbside, but a lot of them don't want to get out at all," Maries County Clerk Rhonda Brewer said. "Some of them are pretty sick, so I'm not going to send any of my workers, but I'm going to go myself and vote them."

Maries County voters with COVID-19 or quarantine should call the county clerk's office at 573-422-3388 to schedule an appointment for Brewer to make a house visit.

Brewer said she will take proper precautions when she visits voters with COVID-19 and in quarantine.

The Cole County Clerk's Office announced earlier this week it will offer curbside absentee voting for those who have been diagnosed and quarantined with COVID-19. That will be 1-4 p.m. today and 8 a.m.-noon Saturday outside the Cole County Courthouse Annex on East High Street in Jefferson City.

Cole County residents who want to vote in this way should call the clerk's office at 573-634-9101 in advance.
