Springfield, Mo. -- (1/25/2018) If you’re a registered voter in Greene County, a blue postcard with your name on it should be arriving in the mail shortly.
“Please watch your mailbox for a new voter ID card over the next 2-9 days,” says Greene County Clerk Shane Schoeller. “We’re hoping the larger voter ID card will be more noticeable for our voters.”
The biennial mailing is required by state law to help keep voter registration rolls current. The ID card lists important information such as your polling place location, ward or township, and your legislative, senate, and school district. More importantly, these cards can be used by voters for identification at the polls, if the voter does not have photo identification.
The voters in precincts, 2-AB, 7-A, 7-C, 34-C, 3rd N Campbell A, and N Republic, will notice a change in their polling places. 2-AB will now be voting at University Heights Baptist Church. 7-A will now be voting at Study School. 7-C will now be voting at Westport Elementary School. 34-C will now be voting at Darr Agricultural Center. 3rd N Campbell A will now be voting at North Point Church. N Republic will now be voting at Republic Schools Bus Center.
Schoeller encourages voters to check their card to be sure all the information is correct and to keep the ID in their wallet. Voters who have registered by mail and haven’t yet cast a ballot in person will get a similar white postcard with instructions on how to vote as well.
If you have received a voter ID card for someone who does not reside at your address, it is important to note on the card that the individual no longer lives at that address. Then place the card back in the mail and this will help ensure the voter registration records for Greene County are kept as accurate as possible for upcoming elections.
