Cast your vote

To vote in the Board of Governors election, Missouri Bar members must complete an electronic ballot, which will be emailed July 20 from the Office of State Courts Administrator. You must log in to the electronic elections portal using your Missouri Bar enrollment number and personal identification number (PIN).

Lawyers are eligible to vote in the board election based on the district your primary work address corresponds with (and that is on file with The Missouri Bar). You can cast as many votes as there are vacancies in your district.
