I am taking classes remotely. Where should I register to vote this semester? If I am already registered to vote in Missouri, can I still vote in Missouri using an absentee ballot?

If you do not have an active Missouri mailing address, you should register to vote wherever you are staying for the semester. Individuals who are already registered in Missouri from previous semesters living in St. Louis should still re-register at their current address. You can update your voter registration at wustl.turbovote.org.

I am registered to vote in Missouri. What if campus closes before Election Day and I am sent home? How can I vote?

We recommend you request a mail-in ballot as soon as possible so that you can vote by mail in case you are not in Missouri to vote in person on Election Day. Even if you request a mail-in ballot, you will still be eligible to vote in person on Election Day if that is what you prefer and you are still in Missouri to do so. You can find more information about requesting a mail-in ballot here.

If I am sent home before my mail-in or absentee ballot arrives in the mail, what should I do?

The best way to guard against this is by requesting your mail-in or absentee ballot as soon as possible. If you are in this position, though, you can request a replacement ballot. Please reach out to your local Board of Elections for more information.

I want to vote by mail because of COVID-19 concerns, but I do not know how to find a notary. What should I do?

The Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement will provide notary services on campus throughout October. Please sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media for more information.

If I am sick or in quarantine on Election Day, how can I vote?

If you are sick or in quarantine, you will not be able to vote in person. We recommend you request a mail-in ballot to ensure that you will be able to vote in case other circumstances, such as being in quarantine, arise for you on Election Day. You can find more information about voting by mail here.
