Extension voting goes electronic for first time

Voting opens Wednesday for 14 candidates running for 10 seats from three districts for the University of Missouri Extension Council in Cole County.

Residents within the county have been invited to vote annually for council members for decades, though participation has been low in recent years. Cole County for the first time will host the elections online at www.extension.missouri.edu/cole.

Anyone age 18 and older who lives in Cole County may cast one ballot online or at the extension office, 2436 Tanner Bridge Road.

Some Missouri counties have been using online voting for awhile, but other counties like Moniteau and Morgan, which will not begin paper elections until Jan. 14-25, are not ready to make the change over.
