To make it easier for election officials, voting registers were often arranged alphabetically by the names of citizens eligible to vote. In addition to the name and address of the voter, these may contain naturalization information and date and place of birth. There was no poll tax on persons eligible to vote in Missouri.

Researching Missouri Voting Records

It is usually best to start searching for voting records (registers, poll lists, poll books, or electoral records) at a local level such as the city, town, or village and then try the county or state. Links to county pages appear below. Many are also found at IRAD depositories.

Additional resources for Missouri voting records may be found in the Illinois-Voting Registers topic page of the Family History Library catalog (FHLC). Copies of records on FHL microfilm and microfiche can be ordered for viewing at Family History Centers. Also find Illinois voting resources available at many libraries (WorldCat). Explore how to search WorldCat and the FHLC.
