Shelby County Clerk Stephanie Bender provided the following information for citizens regarding voter registration and absentee voting for the November 8, 2022 General Election.
Absentee ballots for the November 8, 2022 General Election will be available at the office during the week of September 27. Voters may vote in the County Clerk’s office or if they are unable to come to the office, they may send a signed request asking for a ballot to be mailed to them. The last day the clerk can send a “mail out” absentee ballot is Wednesday, October 26.
Walk in voters may vote in the Clerk’s office through Monday, November 7. Calling the office ahead of time is helpful to have the paperwork ready when you arrive. Voters who are permanently disabled may request to be put on a permanent absentee list. For those who are unable to send a request, a request may be made on your behalf by a relative within the second degree in the presence of the election authority. To have a ballot mailed to you, please mail the signed request to Stephanie Bender, Shelby County Clerk, PO Box 186, Shelbyville MO 63469.
Registering to Vote
The last date to register to vote is October 12, 2022. The office will be open until 5 p.m. that day to register. This year there will be a Central Poling Location in the County Clerk’s Office. People who may use this location are voters who are registered voters in good standing that moved into Shelby County from another county in Missouri and didn’t get registered by the registration date. Those voters need to come to the Clerk’s Office to change your voting address and vote. If you are not a registered voter, or if you are a deleted voter, you will have to register by the October 12 date.
Absentee voting hours
The absentee voting hours are 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily except for the dates listed below. Saturday, November 5 from 8 a.m. through 12 p.m. The office will be open until 5 p.m. for voting on November 7.
Nursing Home Voting
A bi-partisan election team of one Democrat and one Republican judge will go on Wednesday, November 2 to take ballots to residents who have requested them at the area care facilities.
If you have any questions about the election process, please all Stephanie at 573-633-2181.
The public testing of the machines will take place on Wednesday, October 27. The time will be announced later.
