Wednesday is Voter Registration Deadline for August Primary

You have until tomorrow to register to vote in the August primary. Secretary of State Robin Carnahan was in Springfield Monday to encourage people to register. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports.

If you want to participate in the primary election on August 5th, you need to register to vote by 5PM tomorrow.

And even if you are already registered, you may need to do some additional paperwork. Secretary of State Robin Carnahan explains.

By law, you must cast your ballot at an assigned polling place based on your current address...if you're already registered, you can change your address as late as election day...But Greene County Clerk Richard Struckhoff says it's NOT a good idea to wait until then.

Forms that allow you to register for the first time or make changes to your registration are available at Springfield-Greene County Public Libraries, Springfield Public Schools, the county clerk's office and online at SOS dot MO dot GOV.

Besides talking about voter registration, Secretary of State Robin Carnahan was in Springfield to discuss the need for more poll workers, especially for the November election. She says election authorities across the country are predicting voter turnout to be as high as 80 percent.

Locally, Greene County Clerk Richard Struckhoff says he expects to double and even triple the number of poll workers at some precincts in November to help handle higher voter turnout.
