The St. Louis County Board of Elections will be opening two new satellite voting centers, one in south county and one in west county, during the final week of absentee voting.

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

With this pilot program, “we hope to make absentee voting more convenient for St. Louis County voters,” Republican Elections Director Rick Stream said in a news release.

The onsite 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. Democratic Election Director Eric Fey reminded voters that “this is a great option for anyone who expects to be out of St. Louis County on Election Day.”

 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.

Both satellite sites will be open Monday, July 30, through Monday, Aug. 6. 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, Aug. 6, for both locations.
