Recommendations to Ensure Voting in Missouri amid the Corona-19 Crisis

As part of Missouri’s response to the COVID-19 crisis, the state legislature should vote this week to use up to $20 million in federal funding to prepare for a significant increase in early voting.

The League of Women Voters is part of a coalition calling on Governor Mike Parson and Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft to make several policy changes to advance voting in the June 2 municipal election, the Aug. 4 primary and the Nov. election.

Here is what the statewide coalition is asking for—
1. Expanded voting by mail
2. Expanded in-person absentee voting options.
3. Expanded voter registration particularly online.
4. Polling place modifications to ensure public safety and to protect voter accessibility.
5. Robust voter education.
