KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The 2022 election season is almost upon us.
For Missourians, people will need to be 17 and a half years old to be able to register to vote but must be 18 years old by the time of the election to vote. Voters need to be a U.S. citizen and a Missouri resident.
July 6 is the deadline to register for the Aug. 2 primary election, and Oct. 12 is the deadline to register for the Nov. 8 general election.
Voters can register online by completing a Missouri Voter Registration Application online. Mail-in registration forms can be requested online as well.
If voters move to a different address in the same county, they can change the address on election day at the new polling place. However, if voters moved outside where they were previously registered, voters will need to fill out a new voter registration form.
In addition, voters will be given a limited ballot, containing federal and statewide candidates if they move after the registration deadline. They will also be issued a voter registration application in person with the local election authority.
Not sure if you’re registered to vote? You can check your voter registration online.
Voters can also find sample ballots and their polling sites for the upcoming primary election on the Missouri Secretary of State’s website or on their local election authority’s website.
For voters who won’t be able to make it to the polls in August, Missouri’s absentee voting is already open, in person or by mail.
