The deadline for first-time voters to register to vote is Wednesday, October 12.

This deadline also applies to voters who are registered outside of Missouri but have moved into the state. To register, bring ID to the Nodaway County Clerk’s office in the Nodaway County Administration Center, 8 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Registration can also be completed on the Missouri Secretary of State’s website,

“There is a brief form they fill out in our office and they have to show ID,” Melinda Patton, Nodaway County clerk, said. “With the passing of HB1878, an active Missouri voter, who is already registered in another Missouri county, no longer falls under that unregistered voter deadline.  They can register any time, even on election day and vote.”

IDs required to vote are outline in RSMo 115.427:

1.  Persons seeking to vote in a public election shall establish their identity and eligibility to vote at the polling place or, if voting absentee in person under section 115.277, at the office of the election authority or other authorized location designated by the election authority by presenting a form of personal photo identification to election officials. No form of personal photo identification other than the forms listed in this section shall be accepted to establish a voter’s qualifications to vote.
