Voters can request absentee ballots from the County Clerk’s Office in person, by mail or by fax, 100 W Cherry, Ste. 6, Nevada, MO 64772. Relatives within the first degree (parents and children) may complete an absentee ballot application, in person, on behalf of the voter who wishes to vote absentee.

If you have registered to vote by mail and are voting absentee the first time, you must provide a copy of your identification with your absentee ballot request unless you provided a copy with your voter registration application. Examples of identification are:
