Missourians serving in the Armed Forces who are stationed away from home now have access to a new online platform that makes voting significantly easier for them, according to the Missouri secretary of state’s office. The Military and Overseas Voting Access Portal available at www.momilitaryvote.com, has been launched to give active duty service members the opportunity to securely register to vote and request and receive absentee ballots for all local, state and federal elections.
“No eligible Missourians should be deprived of the right to vote because they’re in uniform putting their lives on the line for us,” said Secretary of State Jason Kander. “With the Military and Overseas Voting Access Portal, we are setting a new standard for what it means to protect and promote the voting rights of those defending our country.”
Additionally, the portal’s resources are open to any Missourian who is eligible to vote and residing overseas, including families of active duty service members, members of the Peace Corps and faith-based charity workers.
