04/27/20 -House Spkr Haahr is right! COVID-19 is a “very appropriate excuse for absentee voting!"
Missouri House Speaker Elijah Haahr says he agrees with the idea of “letting voters cite the pandemic as a reason to vote absentee. “I think everybody can say, “yes, if you’re in a state of emergency, especially during a pandemic that manifests itself and spreads from person to person, we do not want you coming to the polls,” Haahr said. “That is a very appropriate excuse for absentee voting.” Springfield News-Leader April 24 2020

Keep up the pressure on Secy. of State Ashcroft and Governor Parson to again use state of emergency authority for absentee voting by mail as they have already done moving municipal elections from April 7 to June 2. Governor Parson said Secy. of State Ashcroft requested the delay of municipal elections and he ordered the postponement “as a necessary step to combat the spread of the virus and protect the health and safety of Missouri voters”.
