The Webster County Clerk’s Office is responsible for all voter registration activities in the county. There are more that 21,730 registered voters in Webster County. The County Clerk is the Election Authority for Webster County and its political subdivisions, and is also responsible for conducting all public elections. Regular elections are held the first Tuesday after the first Monday in April, August, & November. Special elections may also be called in February and June by certain public entities. Two notices displaying sample ballots and polling locations are published in the local newspaper two week's prior to each election. Sample ballots will also be available on our website as well.
Please be advised that any time a voter moves from county to county or state to state, the voter will need to re-register to vote in their new county/state of residence. If a voter is already registered and moves to a new residence located within the same county, that voter will need to update their registration, preferably before Election Day. Registered voters that have a name change will also need to update that information with the County Clerk’s Office.
Any person who is qualified to vote, or who shall become qualified to vote on or before the day of election, shall be entitled to register in the jurisdiction within which he or she resides. In order to vote in any election for which registration is required, a person must be registered to vote in the jurisdiction of his or her residence no later than 5:00 p.m., or the normal closing time of any public building where the registration is being held if such time is later than 5:00 p.m., on the fourth Wednesday prior to the election, unless the voter is an interstate former resident, an intrastate new resident or a new resident, as defined in section 115.275. In no case shall registration for an election extend beyond 10:00 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday prior to the election. Any person registering after such date shall be eligible to vote in subsequent elections.
August 5, 2014 Primary Election
For the August Primary, voters will have to select ONE of five party ballots: Constitution Party; Democrat Party; Libertarian Party; Republican Party; or Non-Partisan (with questions only, no candidates).
Also, there are a number of local issues / candidates that only affect certain parts of the County. So the actual ballot a voter might see at the polls will depend upon their choice of party, and where they live. All in all, there are over 40 different possible combinations in Webster County alone.
Below, please find a link to a consolidated sample, with everything on it. Please be advised this will not be an exact reproduction of what an individual voter will use to cast their vote on August 5th.
