Officials Gearing Up For August 3rd Primary

The August 3 primary election is quickly approaching and local election official, County Clerk Betty Lodewegen is making an effort to educate voters on a number of issues.

Lodewegen announced last week that the residents of Union Township will have a new polling place. Traditionally Union voters have cast their ballots at Brock Station north of Memphis. But the anticipated high voter turnout has made it necessary to move the polling location to the Courthouse.

Lodwegen also is highlighting an existing law to voters in an effort to eliminate any problems on Election Tuesday.

Missouri Statute 115.637 governing class four elections states that electioneering is prohibited within 25 feet of any polling place on the day of the election.

The law states that exit polling, surveying, sampling, electioneering, distributing election literature, posting signs or placing vehicles bearing signs with respect to any candidate or question to be voted on at an election on election day inside the building in which a polling place is located or within 25 feet of the buildings outer door closest to the polling place, or, on the part of any person, refusing to remove or permit removal from property owned or controlled by him, any such election sign or literature located within such distance on such day after request for removal by any person.

Lodewegen stated this typically is not a problem but she wanted to remind voters to remove their campaign pins before entering the polling place to eliminate any legal issues.
