The election was originally scheduled for April 7 but was postponed due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19.

Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft traveled across Missouri in May to deliver personal protective equipment to polling places across the state's 116 election authorities.

In St. Louis County, all election workers will wear gloves and masks and will sanitize polling areas regularly. Voters are asked to wear a mask if possible and remain 6 feet apart.

To help ensure the safety of our workers and voters at all of our po... lling locations today, we have provided Election Judges with gloves and masks to wear. Additionally we sent wipes and hand sanitizer to each location, and Election Judges received extra instruction about how often different materials should be sanitized.
