Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens can’t vote in Tuesday’s primary election
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens apparently won’t be voting in the state’s primary election.
Voting records indicate Greitens is still registered to vote in Jefferson City. No voting records indicate he has switched his registration to Warren County, where he and his family own a home in Innsbrook. The city is east of Jefferson City, about an hour and half drive away.
The Secretary of State’s office says this means Greitens can’t vote Tuesday. State law requires voters who move to another county to re-register to vote. The deadline for changing registrations was July 11.
Greitens resigned June 1 after months of controversy and facing a now-dismissed felony charge for invasion of privacy against his former mistress and numerous campaign fundraising irregularities.
A spokesperson for Greitens’ successor, Gov. Mike Parson, said the governor voted absentee in Polk County.
