    Hey Missouri!
  • 0:05 - 0:07
    If you want to vote
    first you need to register
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    You can check if you’re already registered
    using the link in the description below
  • 0:10 - 0:13
    But if you aren’t yet or you need
    to update your name or address
  • 0:13 - 0:14
    You can do it online
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    Boone County uses a different online form
    than the rest of Missouri
  • 0:17 - 0:18
    But both of them are linked below
  • 0:18 - 0:20
    You can use a mail-in form
    if that’s easier for you
  • 0:20 - 0:23
    But however you register
    you have until October 7th to register
  • 0:23 - 0:25
    If you want to vote
    in the November election
  • 0:25 - 0:26
    Once you’re registered you get to vote!
  • 0:26 - 0:29
    For most people that means
    heading to the polls on November 3rd
  • 0:29 - 0:32
    But if you’re gonna be out of state
    on election day, have an illness,
  • 0:32 - 0:35
    Disability, or religious belief that
    prevents you from getting to the polls
  • 0:35 - 0:36
    You can apply to vote absentee
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    There’s a link to the application form
    below and you have until October 21st
  • 0:39 - 0:41
    To fill it out and mail it
    to your local election authority
  • 0:41 - 0:44
    Once you get your ballot in the mail
    fill it out at your own pace
  • 0:44 - 0:46
    And send it back before November 3rd
  • 0:46 - 0:47
    If you qualify for an absentee ballot
  • 0:47 - 0:49
    you can also go to your
    county election authority’s office
  • 0:49 - 0:53
    From September 22nd to November 2nd
    and vote your absentee ballot in person
  • 0:53 - 0:54
    For everyone else, you can
  • 0:54 - 0:57
    Go to the polls between
    6am and 7pm on November 3rd
  • 0:57 - 0:59
    And there’s a link in the description
    to figure out where you need to go to vote
  • 0:59 - 1:01
    You’ll need to bring an ID with you
  • 1:01 - 1:05
    A valid driver’s license, state ID,
    passport, or military ID,
  • 1:05 - 1:07
    Student ID from a Missouri college
    or technical school,
  • 1:07 - 1:09
    or a current utility bill, bank statement,
  • 1:09 - 1:11
    or paycheck with your name
    and address on it will all work
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    You can also use the same link you used
    to check your registration status
  • 1:14 - 1:16
    And polling location to take a look at
    a sample ballot that tells you
  • 1:16 - 1:18
    Everything you’ll be able to vote for
  • 1:18 - 1:20
    You don’t have to vote for everything
    on the ballot if you don’t want to
  • 1:20 - 1:22
    But your local elections
    are pretty important
  • 1:22 - 1:24
    So it’s worth checking out
    what’s on there ahead of time
  • 1:24 - 1:25
    You can even take a screenshot
  • 1:25 - 1:27
    Or print it out and bring it
    to the polls with you
  • 1:27 - 1:29
    So you don’t forget who
    you wanted to vote for
  • 1:29 - 1:30
    The best thing to do
    if you’re gonna vote this year
  • 1:30 - 1:34
    Is to make a plan to vote right now
    from what day you're gonna register
  • 1:34 - 1:36
    To whether you’re gonna vote
    in person or absentee
  • 1:36 - 1:39
    What kind of ID are you
    gonna use and where it is?
  • 1:39 - 1:41
    Even what time you’re gonna vote
    and how you’re gonna get there
  • 1:41 - 1:44
    Write it down, put it in your
    notes app, text it to your friend
  • 1:44 - 1:47
    Just make a plan so that
    nothing unexpected stops you
  • 1:47 - 1:48
    From being counted on November 3rd
  • 1:48 - 1:50
    All the links you need to check
    your registration
  • 1:50 - 1:52
    and polling location
    are in the description
  • 1:52 - 1:53
    Thanks for being a voter
