Cape Girardeau County to Offer Curbside Voting the Week before the Election

Any voters in Jackson or Cape Girardeau who are physically disabled with some other form of limited mobility will be able to cast their ballots with curbside voting the week prior to the 2020 election, county officials say. This type of voting has long been available on the day of the election and will now be offered from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. October 26th through the 30th at the County Administration Building, on 1 Barton Square in Jackson and at Cape Girardeau’s Osage Centre, at 1625 North Kingshighway. Any local voters who have limited mobility will be able to drive up to the outdoor tent at either one of these two locations and ring the bell when the get there and judges for the election will come out. Officials say this is the first time the county has offered an event like this prior to the election. Officials also say if voters drop off an absentee ballot already in their possession they must have a form of identification. This could be a driver’s license or, a utility payment stub, or some other acceptable verifiable way of proving identity. As of October 15, a total of 3,800 eligible county residents have cast their votes. If voters have any questions or concerns they can call the County Clerk’s Office at (573) 243-3547.
