"It was blazing hot and super cool." That's my recollection of the Ozark Music Festival in Sedalia 50 years ago last week. My mother, however, was not impressed that I made national news. In fact, "mortified" is probably not even close to describing her feelings. But, parents, there is hope. more
Every two years each County Clerk in Missouri conducts a canvas of registered voters in the county. This allows us to keep our records current, verifying you do still live in the location you have indicated previously, and allows you to receive up to date polling location and redistricting changes by reviewing the information on your card. Polling locations, equipment, and many other variables are reviewed in order to determine whether to maintain certain facilities due to availability, redistricting, compliance, security, cost, and poll worker availability. It is with all of these things in mind that the decisions have been made to consolidate three polling locations. These are Cedar Springs, Madison BC, and Washington. The new voter registration cards that you’ve received this spring will note these new changes. These decisions are never taken lightly. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes but want to make everyone aware to check their new cards before driving to their polling location to ensure they make appropriate travel plans. more
