Voter Rights

Voter's Bill of Rights

As a registered Missouri voter, you have the right to:

 

1) Cast your ballot free from interference in a private and secret manner unless assistance is requested

 

2) View written instructions on how to obtain a ballot for voting, how to vote and prepare the ballot for deposit in the ballot box

 

3) Ask for and receive further instructions from election judges concerning the manner of voting

 

4) View a sample ballot in the polling place before voting

 

5) Cast a vote if you are in line before the polls are closed at 7:00 p.m. (closing time at the polls)

 

6) Ask for assistance from an election judge or person of your choice if you have any physical disability which hinders your ability to independently vote your ballot; cast your ballot on an accessible voting system (i.e. equipped with an audio ballot), or request curbside voting or a more accessible polling location if needed

 

7) Receive another if your ballot is accidentally spoiled or you make an error

 

8) Vote by provisional ballot in a state or federal election, if your name is not on the precinct register and the election judges or election authority cannot determine your registration status

 

9) Vote by absentee ballot when permitted by law

 

10) Verify that the choices you made on the screen match the attached voter-verifiable paper audit trail if you vote on a "touch screen" system

 

11) File a grievance with the Secretary of State's office if your rights under the Help America Vote Act, Title III, have been violated
