St. Charles County Election Authority to Offer ‘No Excuse’ Voting at Satellite Location

Beginning with the April 4, 2023, General Municipal Election, the St. Charles County Election Authority will offer all St. Charles County voters the opportunity to vote early without an excuse at a satellite location specifically for this purpose. With the change in Missouri law that went into effect Aug. 28, 2022, voters now can absentee vote in person without giving a reason.

The satellite voting site will be at Element Church, 100 Mall Parkway, Suite 500 in Wentzville, site of the former Belz Mall between I-70 and I-64. It will be open weekdays 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Tuesday, March 21-Friday, March 31.

“The satellite voting site will accommodate the significant increase of voters choosing to vote during a two-week period prior to election day,” says Director of Elections Kurt Bahr. “Voters must have a valid photo ID to receive a ballot just as they do on election day.”

No excuse absentee voting will also be available weekdays 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., March 21-March 31; 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Saturday, April 1; and 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday, April 3 at the St. Charles County Election Authority, 397 Turner Boulevard in St. Peters. April 3 is the last day for no excuse absentee voting for the April 4 election. Curbside voting for voters with mobility issues is available at the Election Authority office during absentee voting times. Curbside voting will not be available at the satellite voting site at Element Church.
