County Clerk Melissa Kempke requests that voters review the information displayed on the card to ensure the address, name, and additional information are still correct. If someone receives a card with incorrect information, Kempke asks that invalid cards be returned to her office. Changes may be made via application at the office of the County Clerk.

County Clerk Melissa Kempke recently announced the county’s attempt to update and renew the records of Pike County’s voters. Each voter registered within the county should receive a voter card in the near future.

Kempke explained the voter records are canvassing §115.179.

With these updates, the county will give everyone a new card that has current information, as polling places, districts, and the like may have changed over time. The new cards should also address name  and address changes.

“Please do not throw away if someone no longer lives at that address,” said Kempke. She added a request that invalid cards be returned to the Clerk’s Office for further research.

The Clerk also addressed a common concern. “By updating your information it will not increase your odds of being called for jury duty,” she explained.

A phone call will not be valid to change voter information. Any changes must be provided with a signature.

Individuals must make changes by requesting an application, which can be mailed to you or picked up at the County Clerk’s Office.
