Kander Awards Grant to Scotland County to Increase Voting Convenience and Security

 

Jefferson City, Mo. — Secretary of State Jason Kander awarded $2,038 to Scotland County to increase election efficiency and provide improved services for voters and poll workers.

“The right to vote is fundamental and must be available to all eligible Missourians,” Kander said. “This grant will help local officials make the voting experience even more convenient and secure in Scotland County and in Missouri as a whole.”

The grant can be used to purchase voting equipment, train poll workers and update voter records, among other opportunities. The level of funding is determined by the number of polling places used in the county in the most recent general election.
