Today is last chance to register for Nov. election

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

SIKESTON -- Today is the last chance for Missouri residents who are not registered voters to change their status and become eligible to cast a ballot in the Nov. 6 general election.

"You may register here at the courthouse in the County Clerk's Office, Missouri license bureau offices, state agency offices and most city halls," Scott County Clerk Rita Milam said in a recent news release.

New Madrid County Clerk Clement Cravens and staff at the County Clerk's Office for Mississippi County also listed those places as options for those who wish to register to vote.

"If you have received a voter identification card from my office then you are registered to vote," Milam said. "Please notify us of an address or name change to your voter registration. If you have not received a card from us and you feel you are a registered voter, then please notify us immediately."

Some form of identification showing the voter's address is required to register, according to Milam.

Milam cautioned registered voters to be aware that there are mailings regarding voting registration that have nothing to do with her office.
