Finally, a development in Missouri that makes it easier to vote, rather than harder. Secretary of State Jason Kander on Thursday unveiled a new online tool that allows Missourians to fill out a voter registration form online through his office’s website. The new online form is at and, get this, it’s designed to make things simpler for voters. “I am committed to ensuring that all eligible Missourians have the opportunity to cast a ballot, and since you can’t vote unless you’re registered, we decided to do what we could to simplify the process and make it more convenient for voters,” Kander said.
The new online tool will allow eligible Missourians to fill out their voter registration form for the first time or change their registration address. Once the voter completes and signs the form on a computer, tablet or smartphone, Kander’s office will print and mail the form to the voter’s local election authority. This online tool is similar to one implemented by Boone County earlier this year.
“I am pleased that we have developed a way to make this process more convenient for voters, while not changing the procedure or adding additional burdens for local election authorities,” Kander said.
