April 7 Election Pushed Back to June 2

Due to the Covid-19, and so much surrounding it being unknown, Governor Parsons has announced that the April 7 Municipal Election has now been postponed until June 2. I just want to let you, the voters of Shelby County, know of some of the changes with the Election, amongst all of the other changes in our world we are dealing with daily now.
Important dates to remember for the Municipal Election are
You must be registered by March 11
You must be 18 by April 7 to vote in the Municipal Election
The deadline to file as a write-in candidate is March 27. Our office will be open until 5 pm that day
The new deadline to apply for an absentee ballot shall be May 20
In-person absentee ballots may be cast until 5pm on June 1
Absentee ballots must be received in our office by June 2
The County Clerk’s Office is still open for you to do in-person absentee voting, or you can request a ballot be mailed to you at your residence. If you choose to do in-person voting, please call ahead as our procedure will now be a little different to protect you and my staff.
As of now your polling location will remain the same for the June 2 Election as it always has been. If something should happen to change, we will let you know as soon as we can.
If you are feeling ill in any way please refrain from visiting the Courthouse, as we are trying to protect all of our employees and also protect you. Thank you for your understanding.
My office would like to thank the Shelby County Citizens for their understanding during these constantly changing times. If you have any questions or would like an absentee ballot sent to you, please contact The Shelby County Clerk’s Office at 573-633-2181.
I pray all of you and your families stay safe and healthy through this.
