COLUMBIA — Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan reminded people in a press release Monday to register to vote so they can participate in the presidential preference primary on Feb. 7. The deadline to register is Wednesday.

Registering to vote can be done in person or by mail. A mailed registration needs to be postmarked by the deadline Jan. 11 to ensure eligibility for the presidential preference primary.

Individuals in Columbia can fill out, print, sign and mail the Missouri Voter Registration Application. The form should be sent to Wendy S. Noren, Boone County Clerk, 801 E. Walnut St., Room 236, Columbia, MO 65201.

Boone County voters can also visit City Clerk Offices in Ashland, Centralia, Hallsville, Rocheport and Sturgeon.

Carnahan also stated in the release that it is important to update voter registration information if a currently registered voter has moved or changed their name. Also, anyone who will be 18 years old by Feb. 7 and has not registered yet can request a voter registration card from the Secretary of State office using the "Register to Vote" tool.
