Money will be used to offset cost of cleaning up voting rolls
The Secretary of State's office announced Tuesday that Audrain County has been awarded an election grant of approximately $4,300 aimed at increasing efficiency and providing up-to-date equipment and services for voters and poll workers. The guidelines say the funds can be used to purchase certified voting equipment and replacement parts, train poll workers, and update voters records.
Audrain County intends to use the funds to help offset the cost of cleaning up the voting rolls. "The next canvas, or cleaning of the rolls, is coming soon," said Audrain County Clerk Shelley Harvey. "The money will help us offset the costs of that canvas, saving more of our budget for other things."
