Boone County ballots going out by mail Oct. 14

Kathy Thorberg, county clerk and election commissioner, preparing the general election for the Oct. 14 mailing.
Boone County’s elections this year are by-mail only, which means Boone County residents do not need to request a by-mail ballot.
In other parts of the state, where in-person polling places are planned, all voters have received applications for mail-in ballots for the Nov. 3 general election due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Boone County, all registered voters will automatically receive by-mail ballots, and those will be mailed out on Wednesday, Oct. 14. More than 3,600 ballots will be mailed out to the addresses on file with the County Clerk’s office.
Once your ballot arrives, read it carefully and follow the instructions to complete it and return it.
Ballots being returned by mail, taken directly to the County Clerk’s office, or deposited in the drop box outside the west entrance of the Boone County Courthouse.
No election day polling places will be available in Boone County.
