The County Clerk is responsible for all voter registration activities in the county.
Please be advised that any time a voter moves from county to county or state to state, that voter will need to re-register to vote in their new county/state of residence. If a voter is already registered and moves to a new residence located in the same county, that voter will need to update their registration, preferably before the day of the election.
The deadline to register to vote in any given election is 28 days prior to the election. Voting in a county or precinct therein that does not represent your current residence on the day of the election is a violation of Missouri statute and is prosecutable by law. For more information about voter registration please call 642-0730.
If you would like to make sure you are registered to vote you can visit the Secretary of State’s website or check with the Callaway County Clerk’s Office. You can also find out what your voting location is.
Citizens can register to vote at 17 ½ years of age but must be at least 18 years of age by the date of the election to vote. Citizens must be US citizens and a resident of Missouri to register. No person shall be entitled to vote while confined under a sentence of imprisonment, while on probation or parole after the conviction of a felony, or after conviction of a felony or misdemeanor connected with voting or the right of suffrage.
Where to Register to Vote
Missourians can register to vote by filling out the Missouri Voter Registration Application, at the office of the local election authority, and at any Department of Motor Vehicles office, or state agency providing a service to the public (WIC, Social Services, etc).
