Module 4

Council elections

Council members are elected and appointed public officials. The Revised Statutes of Missouri require county extension councils to organize and conduct an election of membership each January. All citizens of voting age are eligible to vote in the election. This module will:

  • Help extension councils comply with state statutes regarding election of members.
  • Provide suggested processes for conducting the election to provide all eligible voters the opportunity to participate.
  • Assist in publicizing the election to all citizens.
