“Carroll County residents can register to vote at a number of locations,” McGaugh said.  “The first and foremost is here in the elections office of the courthouse.  We do have other satellite registrar sites that include the Division of Family Services office, the Carroll County Health Department, and the Carrollton License Bureau, as well as the Hale and Norborne city halls.”

A new report reveals that nearly one-third of the Missouri’s eligible residents haven’t signed up to vote and may have no plans to register.  The latest numbers show that 31 percent of eligible Missourians are not registered to vote. But that’s slightly better than national average, which is 35 percent.  Aside from the presidential race, Missouri’s ballot also includes candidates for U.S. Senate, Congress, governor and other state executive, legislative and judicial offices.
