County clerks work to keep elections secure, fair

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Local officials stated that they are working harder this year to ensure fair and secure elections.
Both Greene and Christian Counties’ county clerks said that multiple processes have been put in place to ensure every vote is correctly counted.

Kay Brown, Christian County Clerk, stated that “everything has a number lock.” Everything that goes out, from our ballots to our equipment, has a seal that must be broken on election day. One thing is certain about our machines: they are not connected to any internet. They are stand-alone machines so that I believe that is very positive.

Brown stated that the voting equipment was retested after polls close to ensure accuracy.

Greene County Clerk Shane Schoeller stated that eyes are welcome to observe the election process.

Schoeller said, “You have the challengers and you have watchers.” “The challengers are there in order to ensure that no election laws are broken on the day. The watchers will ensure that the ballots are being cast correctly. They are available to be present on election day, as well as after the polls close. They can also be present for the preparation of absentee ballots and the tabulating process.

We spoke to voters who said that they felt the voting process was smooth. They expressed confidence that their votes would be correctly counted.
