When do I need to update my voter registration in the state of Missouri?

In the state of Missouri, you must update your voter registration if you move or change your name, which you can do by contacting your local election authority. If you move within the same county, you can change your address with your local election authority or at your polling place on Election Day. However, if you move outside of your election jurisdiction where you were registered, you must complete a new registration application. Additionally, if you moved prior to the registration deadline before the election, you must complete a new registration application before that deadline in order to be able to vote a full ballot in the upcoming election. If you move after the registration deadline, you must complete a new registration application with the local election authority, and you will then only be able to vote a limited ballot. Nonetheless, if the upcoming election is a presidential election, and you moved after the registration deadline, you can still register and vote a presidential and vice presidential ballot.
