JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) - Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan is reminding eligible state residents to register to vote by the end of the day Wednesday, October 10th, in order to take part in the November 6th general election.
152,000 Missourians have already signed up since the first of the year.
Registration can be done in person at the nearest election authority’s office or by visiting www.GoVoteMissouri.com to view different options for registering, either in person or by mail.
A mailed voter registration application must be postmarked by the October 10th deadline to ensure a voter is eligible to cast a ballot in the November 6th general election.
Carnahan adds that it’s important to remember that currently registered voters who have moved or changed their names need to update their registration info with their local election authorities to make sure they go to the correct polling place and are listed accurately once they’ve arrived.
Voters can confirm they are registered at the correct address by using the “Check Your Voter Registration” tool available at www.GoVoteMissouri.com.
To be eligible to vote in Missouri an individual must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen and a Missouri resident.
Missourians who will turn 18 on or before November 6th are eligible and encouraged to register by tonight’s deadline.
