April Municipal Elections In Missouri Have Been Moved To June 2

Municipal elections that were scheduled for April in Missouri are being postponed.

Governor Parson Wednesday signed Executive Order 20-03, which orders all Missouri municipal elections previously scheduled for April 7 to be postponed to June 2.

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 reached the age of 18 by April 7 will be allowed to cast a ballot.

Greene County Clerk Shane Schoeller has petitioned the Southern Appellate Court to postpone the date of the general municipal election from April 7 to June 2, according to his office. Twenty-five County Clerks throughout the Southern Appellate Court district have joined Schoeller’s petition by filing an Entry of Appearance and Consent.

In addition to moving the date of the election, the petition also asks the court to extend the deadline for absentee voting to Monday, June 1, and to clarify that the original voter registration and eligibility requirements for the April 7th election will remain intact.
