November 15, 2022Missouri Job Centers assisting residents with voter registration
Missouri Job Centers are making it easier for Missourians to become registered voters. Any Missouri resident interested in registering to vote can now do so at Job Centers across the state.
Residents can utilize Job Center resources to access an electronic voter registration application on the Missouri Secretary of State website or receive and fill out a paper application at a Job Center. Anyone who has moved or changed their name can also fill out an application at a Job Center.
“Our Job Centers offer numerous free services and are constantly striving to find more ways to serve Missouri residents,” said Dr. Mardy Leathers, director of the Office of Workforce Development. “By assisting Missourians with voter registration, we are providing citizens the ability to be more involved in decisions that impact their community, state, and nation.”
Along with Missouri Job Centers, residents can fill out a voter registration application at a local election authority, a drivers licensing office, a designated state agency, or a library.
Upcoming election days in Missouri are Feb. 7, March 7, April 4, Aug. 8, and Nov. 7. The deadline to register to vote on those days are Jan. 11, Feb. 8, March 8, July 12, and Oct. 11, respectively.
As of 2020, 4,338,133 Missouri residents are registered to vote, an increase of more than 125,000 people from 2018. The number of registered voters in Missouri surpassed 4 million for the first time in 2004.
