Missouri offers multiple ways for residents to register to vote. Residents registering to vote have the option to: register online, register in person, or print or request a paper registration application to mail in. 

  1. Online: Residents looking to register online can do so by going to the “register to vote” page on the Missouri Secretary of State’s Website. Then, click on the “Submit Online Voter Registration” tab. 
    1. Note: The start screen for the registration form states: “This application is designed to work in Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer 11 and above.” Registrants without access to these internet extensions may have to register another way. 
  2. In Person: Registrants who prefer to register in person can do so at their local county clerk’s office. For Webster Groves [St. Louis County], that location is the St. Louis County Board of Elections. Their address is 725 Northwest Plaza Dr. St. Ann, MO 63074
    1. For those looking to register who live outside of St. Louis County, you can find your local county clerk’s office by going to https://www.sos.mo.gov/elections/goVoteMissouri/pickupmail
    2. Registrants can also pick up voter registration forms at “any state agency providing service to the public.”
  3. Print and Mail In: Residents who hope to register to vote can also do so by mailing in a completed voter registration application. Go to https://s1.sos.mo.gov/Elections/VoterRegistration/Home/Print and select the county you live in from the dropdown. This will open a PDF registration form which you can print. Follow the instructions on the application and mail it to the specified election authority. 
    1. Note: Registration applications must be postmarked by the last day to register (Oct. 7) in order to vote in the Nov. 3 election. 
  4. Request Application and Mail In: Registrants who would like to submit a Voter Registration application by mail and who would like the application mailed to them can go to https://s1.sos.mo.gov/elections/goVoteMissouri/request. You will be able to fill out a form requesting that an application be sent to you. 
    1. NOTE: According to the Secretary of State’s Website, requested ballots may take 3-5 days to deliver. If you are looking to register in time for the Nov. 3 option, this option may take past the deadline of Oct. 7 to complete.
