Voter Registration

Who May Register?

  • Anyone who is 17 1/2 years old
  • A citizen of the United States

If you are a convicted felon, you may register to vote after you have served your entire sentence, including any probation or parole.
You may not register to vote if a court has declared you incapacitated.

Residency Requirements
Missouri has no residency requirements to register to vote; however, you must be registered to vote by the 4th Wednesday prior to an election in order to vote in that election.

You may register at the:
Morgan County Clerk's Office at: 100 E. Newton, Versailles, Missouri Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. 
Versailles License Bureau: 108 N. Monroe, Versailles, Missouri 
Division of Family Services: 703 N. Monroe, Versailles, Missouri
(To guarantee the County Clerk's office receives your voter registration application, we strongly urge that you appear in person at the County Clerk's office to register to vote.)

When Do I Vote?
Click here for an election calendar. Missouri has a consolidated election schedule. Elections may be held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of the following months: February, March, April, June, August and November.

Where Do I Vote?
After you have registered to vote you will be mailed your voter identification card listing your precinct and polling location.
The list of precincts and polling locations are listed in the Morgan County Statesmen newspaper the second Wednesday before the election. You may also click here for voting locations.

How Do I Vote?
You must have an updated address on your voter registration before you vote.
If you have not filed a change of address by Election day, your address will need to be updated so you can be assigned to the correct polling location for your new address.
As of August 28, 2022, you no longer need to take your voter identification card with you to your polling place. You now have to provide a photo ID.  Acceptable forms of ID are listed below. 

Acceptable forms of photo identification include:

  • Non-expired Missouri driver's license or non-driver's license
  • Non-expired United States Passport
  • Non-expired Military ID, including a Veteran's ID card
  • Another photo ID issued by the United States or the state of Missouri that is not expired

Party Preference
Missouri does not register voters by political party so you will not be asked about any party affiliation when you register. However, you may only receive 1 party ballot when you vote at each Primary Election. You must request a party ballot from the election judges when you vote a Primary Election, but you do not have to choose the same party ballot at subsequent primaries.

Absentee Ballots
You may vote by absentee ballot if you are unable to go to the polls because of:

  • Temporary absent from the County on Election Day
  • Confinement due to illness or physical disability
  • Your religious belief
  • Military service
  • Incarceration, but have retained voting privileges

You may apply for an absentee ballot through the County Clerk's office.

The quickest and most efficient way is to apply in person. You will immediately receive your ballot to be voted in the office.
You may vote in person until 5:00 P.M. the day before an election.
You may have your ballot mailed to your address.  The deadline for receiving an application for an absentee ballot to be mailed out is 5 P.M. the second Wednesday before an election. All absentee ballots that are mailed by voters must be returned to the County Clerk's office before the polls close at 7:00 P.M. on Election Day. You will need to sign the affidavit on the return envelope before a Notary Public.

Voting Services for the Elderly, Disabled and Handicapped Voters
You may register to vote by mail.  If you choose to register by mail please include a copy of your driver's license.
Absentee voting in the County Clerk's office is an option or you may request to have your name added to the permanent absentee application list. Once on that list, you will be sent an application for each election you qualify to vote in.  You will need to return the completed application if you wish to vote and your absentee ballot will be mailed to you.
If a voter is blind or cannot read, he or she may have a person of his or her choosing accompany them to help vote their ballot. Also, a bi-partisan team of election workers may read the ballot to a voter and mark the ballot at the voter's direction.
Curbside voting is also available at the voters poll location.
