Over 7,000 Boone County voters have requested an absentee or mail-in ballot for the August 4th Primary Election. With the election one week away, the Boone County Clerk’s Office would like to remind voters that all ballots must be received in the office at 801 E. Walnut, Room 236 by 7 p.m. on Election Day.
If you have requested an absentee ballot and not yet returned it, we recommend that you bring your voted ballot to the Boone County Government Center to be sure our office receives it by August 4th. If you have requested a mail-in ballot and not yet returned it, we recommend that you mail your ballot by bringing it directly to the post office in downtown Columbia..
The United States Postal Service recommends that voters mail their ballots at least one week before Election Day.
In-person absentee voting is also available until 5 p.m. on August 3rd, including this Saturday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., at the Boone County Clerk’s Office, 801 E. Walnut, Room 236.
