Voting & Elections
There are 116 election jurisdictions in Missouri, each with their own voting system. That means there is no single voting system or single point of access.
Voting machines are not connected to the internet, so they can't be hacked from the internet.
Every single voting machine in Missouri is required to produce a paper audit trail.
Election results are audited by local election officials before any results are certified.
