Tuesday is Election Day and the Secretary of State’s Office – Missouri’s election authority – is informing voters that mistakes made in the polling booths can easily be addressed. Chuck Pryor, with the Secretary of State’s Office, says a mistake can be turned into an election official – at the polling station – who will mark the ballot as spoiled and give the voter a new ballot. The voter who has made a mistake must not place the spoiled ballot into the ballot box. If that happens, it will be too late to ask for a new ballot.
