A message from Joe Zelle, ODO President
St. Louis county plans to hold the municipal election originally scheduled for April, on June 2, 2020. There are three items on the ballot. The Melville school board, St. Louis Community College trustee, and St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District Bond issue. The County is anticipating a 10% or less turn out, and is planning to reduce the number of polling places from 365 to 159. So, there is a good chance your polling place could change for the June election. They are also encouraging seniors to vote absentee.
The Melville School Board Candidates are:
(Vote for up to 3)
Emma Jean Pretto
Jeff Wolman, and
The St. Louis Community College Trustee Candidates are:
Mary E Luebke
Patrick J McKelvey
The St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District is a request to issue $500,000,000 in bonds.
Yes or No
Everyone registered to vote and 60 years old or above, should have received a letter with three requests for absentee ballots, the June 2 municipal election, the August 4 Missouri State Primary, and the November 3 general election. If you want to vote by absentee ballot in the June 2 election, the request must be submitted by May 20. The County is recommending that you submit all three requests at the same time, using the envelope provided. You must indicate the reason for requesting an absentee ballot. If you choose the option, “incapacity or confinement due to illness or physical disability, including caring for a person who is incapacitated or confined due to illness or disability” (No Notary Required). Any other reason would require a Notary Seal on the envelope of your ballot. If you get an absentee ballot and later choose to vote in person, you need to bring the unused ballot with you to the polling place.
