The Greene County Clerk's office will open Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for those wishing to cast absentee ballots in the upcoming presidential primary election, according to a news release.
County Clerk Richard Struckhoff says the hours are great for those wishing to avoid weekday parking congestion and headaches.
For those wishing to vote absentee by mail, a written request for a ballot must be submitted to the clerk's office by no later than 5 p.m. Wednesday. The request must be signed, along with an explanation for voting absentee; the request must also list a party preference (Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Constitution or Issues Only) and contains the address to which the ballot should be sent.
As a reminder, Missouri state law restricts the use of absentee voting to people with legal reasons, such as an absence from the county on Election Day.
