ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — St. Louis County voters will be able to cast their ballots at any polling place during the Nov. 3 general election.
The changes went into effect starting with the August primaries and are possible due to newly purchased voting equipment, according to a news release from the county's election board. State law requires that voters are still assigned to a polling place, but they are not required to vote there.
"For their convenience and safety, the Board of Elections wanted to provide the flexibility to voters to vote at the St. Louis County polling place most convenient to them and the flexibility to go to an alternate polling site if there are long lines at their assigned location," the release said.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. - 7 p.m. on Nov. 3. To find a complete list of polling places, click here.
