Board Elections

Nominating petitions for vacancies on The Missouri Bar Board of Governors are due no later than June 22. District and Appellate District Board petitions must be signed by a minimum of 10 Missouri Bar members who are in good standing, enrolled and entitled to vote in the respective district. 

Electronic submissions and electronic signatures are permitted, using the forms below.  The same forms may also be printed and signed in the traditional manner.  (If you gather electronic signatures, we would recommend using a single form, rather than multiple forms, and having each member sign, save, and forward it to the next person before the final person signing returns it to the candidate for submission.)  If you have questions about creating an electronic signature, click here.  

Petitions may be emailed or mailed. If emailed, the original must be retained by the candidate in his or her file for 1 year and be available upon request. Phone: 573-751-7342. Email: maggie.burch@courts.mo.gov.
