Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander made the announcement this week when he announced the membership of an early voting commission formed to evaluate the most efficient, fair and secure way to allow eligible Missourians to cast a ballot before Election Day. The commission will meet throughout the month of February in Jefferson City to discuss the merits of early voting and to give citizens the opportunity to provide input.
The goal of the committee is to preserve security in elections while increasing efficient access for eligible voters. Kander says, “Early voting could help alleviate long lines at the polls on Election Day by adding a much-needed convenience for Missourians across the state.”
Again, Schuyler County Clerk Bree Shaw has been selected to be one of the members of the commission. Shaw will serve along with other committee members from all political parties and all regions of Missouri.
