County voter canvassing underway

The Callaway County Clerk's office will be handling voter registration canvassing this year in-house.

Missouri statute requires this process be completed every two years in order to ensure all voter information on file is correct and up to date. In the past, this process was handled by the Edward J. Rice Company.

"With us doing it in-house, it's going to save us a little bit of money, and we can do it in waves rather than sending out 28,000 at a time and being overwhelmed," said Ronda Miller, Callaway County clerk.

When handled by an outside company, the process would be done in one mass mailing. The office is handling the process by precinct this year and will take about three months total, which is typical, said Miller.

Green voter identification cards will be mailed to registered voters. Voters must check their address and the spelling of their name.

If any information is incorrect, the office asks the card's back be filled out and mailed back.

The office is currently wrapping up the northern portion of the county, per the county clerk.
