The St. Louis County Board of Elections will have three satellite voting centers this election during the final week of absentee voting — one in south county, one in west county and a new one in Clayton.

The south county location will be at the St. Louis County Government Center – South, 4544 Lemay Ferry Road, 63129.

All three satellite sites opened Oct. 29, and will be open through Monday, Nov. 5. Their hours of operation will be 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Extended hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 5 for all locations.

The sites will serve in conjunction with the main on-site absentee voting program at the Board of Election’s main office at the North County Government Center in St. Ann.

“During the August pilot of the satellite on-site absentee voting centers, we received overwhelming positive feedback from the public that these centers made absentee voting more convenient and accessible,” Republican Director of Elections Rick Stream said in a news release. “So we are excited to be expanding the program leading up to the November midterms.”

The on-site absentee program cuts out the waiting time for ballot requests to be processed through the mail, and the additional locations will allow voters to access the program more easily from anywhere in the county.

Anyone who is a registered voter in St. Louis County and qualifies for absentee voting may vote at any absentee voting location they choose. Democratic Director of Elections Eric Fey suggested that voters bring a sample ballot or “cheat sheet” with them to the polls due to the length of the ballot.

 The south county location will be at the St. Louis County Government Center – South, 4544 Lemay Ferry Road, 63129.

The west county location will be at St. Louis County Municipal Court – West Division, 82 Clarkson Wilson Center, 63017.

The new Clayton location will be at the Center of Clayton, 50 Gay Avenue, 63105.
