There will be no elections on Tuesday, April 7.
 
No election to determine three members of the Seymour R-II Board of Education.

No election to determine who will fill three seats in Seymour city government.
 
For that matter, no elections anywhere in Webster County.
 
And no elections anywhere in Missouri.
 
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson signed Executive Order 20-03 last week in response to the national COVID-19 pandemic, which orders all Missouri municipal and school elections set for April 7 to the postponed until Tuesday, June 2. Parson’s order declares that ballots already printed for the
 
April 7 election may be used at the postponed date of June 2.
 
Voters who have attained the age of 18 by April 7 will be allowed to cast a ballot if registered to vote.
 
“Given the growing concern surrounding COVID-19 and the large number of people elections attract, postponing Missouri’s municipal elections is a necessary step to help combat the spread of the virus and protect the health and safety of Missouri voters,” Parson said.
 
Per the governor’s order:
 
• The closing date to register to vote in the June 2 election remains March 11.
 
• The deadline for filing as a write-in candidate for office remains 5 p.m. this Friday afternoon.
 
• The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot has changed to May 20.
 
• In-person absentee ballots may be cast until 5 p.m. on June 1.
 
• The deadline by which absentee ballots must be received by the election authority is 7 p.m. on June 2.
 
• Legal notice for the June 2 election must be published as required by Missouri law in a legal newspaper.
 
In the Webster County Citizen, those legal ballots will appear in the May 20 and May 27 editions.
 
Local races of interest include a trio of three-year seats on the seven-member Seymour R-II Board of Education, a two-year seat for Seymour mayor and a pair of two-year seats on the Seymour Board of Aldermen.
