Absentee voting starts for Aug. 4 General Primary Election

  Greene County Clerk Shane Schoeller announced that absentee ballots became available June 23 for those eligible voters who are unable to go to their regular polling place on Aug. 4. Any registered voter who desires to vote in this election will be able to choose only one certified ballot, for either the Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, Constitution or Green Party. Voters cast these primary ballots to select the candidates for statewide and local offices to represent their respective party in the upcoming Nov. 3 General Election. Issues-only ballots are available for one statewide issue and one local issue.
  Voters may cast an absentee ballot in the clerk’s office at the Greene County Archives/Elections Center, 1126 N Boonville Ave, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, until the day before the election, Monday, Aug. 3. Homebound or out-of-town voters may request an absentee ballot by mail, either handwritten or from the fillable form that can be found the Greene County Clerk’s website. For this year only, applications have been updated to reflect the new COVID-19 reason to request an absentee ballot. Mail-in ballots can only be requested by mail or in-person using the application found on the office website.
  These applications must be signed only by the voters and received in the clerk’s office no later than 5 p.m. on the second Wednesday prior to the election, July 22. Mailed ballots must be voted, notarized, returned by mail, and received in the clerk’s office before 7 p.m. on Election Day.
  Questions about absentee voting should be directed to Schoeller’s office at 868-4060.
