Executive Order Moves April 7th Elections to June 2nd as Result of Coronavirus

Governor Mike Parson signed an Executive Order that moves all Missouri municipal elections previously scheduled for April 7, 2020, to be postponed to June 2, 2020. The move comes in response to COVID-19 and a request from Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft. The Executive Order declares that ballots already printed for the April 7 election may be used at the postponed date of June 2. Voters who have attained the age of 18 by April 7 will be allowed to cast a ballot. Governor Parson said postponing an election is not easy, but we are all in this together. He expressed thanks to Secretary Ashcroft and the state’s 116 election authorities for their leadership, cooperation, and commitment to doing what is best for their communities during this time.
