Get Out The Vote

Get Out the Vote

This Jewish new year coincides with an election year. It is our responsibility as US citizens to make our voices heard by voting. This year the coronavirus pandemic presents some challenges, but they won’t prevent us from exercising our right as Americans.

Hear Rabbi Adam Bellows’ September 11 sermon on the importance of voting and what United Hebrew is doing to help.

Voter Registration

The first step is to make sure you are registered to vote. Here is the link for the Missouri Secretary of State’s website to check your voter registration: https://s1.sos.mo.gov/elections/voterlookup

If you are not registered to vote, you have until October 7, 2020 to sign up to vote in the November election. You can register online or by mail. Mailed forms must be postmarked by the October 7, 2020 deadline.

Request an Absentee Ballot

You can vote in person or request an absentee ballot. The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot is Oct. 21, 2020. Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on election day. Missouri allows those who have coronavirus or are at risk of getting it to vote by absentee ballot without requiring a notary’s signature. Ballots may be returned in person or by mail.

Here are forms to request an absentee ballot:

Request a Mail-In Ballot

You also can vote using a mail-in ballot, which must be requested by October 21, 2020 and received by mail by 7 p.m. on election day. Every voter is eligible to vote by mail, and a notary’s signature is required. Tip: Put two postage stamps on your ballot’s envelop so it arrives faster.

Here are forms to request a mailed ballot:
