Election Day is November 6, 2018. This General Election ballot covers a lot and is a large, two-sided ballot including seven statewide questions and seven Jackson County questions.

The ballot is taking Absentee voters at least 20 minutes to complete. In order to save time at the polls on Election Day, please go to the Jackson County Election Board website (https://www.jcebmo.org/current-notices/) and go to “Voter Information Lookup” to find your custom sample ballot. Mark this sample ballot ahead of time and take it with you to reference on Election Day.

About one week before the election the Jackson County Election Board will send all registered voters a poll notification card. This card will contain the name and address of your polling location. In addition, you may look up your polling location on our website at www.jcebmo.org/current-notices/.

Polling locations are open from 6:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Remember, if you are in line to vote at 7 p.m. you will be allowed to vote.

If you will be out of town and unable to vote on Election Day you may request an absentee ballot. You can come to our office at 215 N. Liberty, Independence to vote absentee any weekday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 pm. You can also go to the Jackson County Election Board website (www.jcebmo.org) to request an absentee ballot. The last day we can mail absentee ballots is Wednesday, October 31. If you send your absentee ballot back in by mail, it will need to be notarized and received by Election Day.
