CARTHAGE, Mo. — Southwest Missouri Democrats will use the site of their quarterly breakfast on Saturday for a voter registration effort.
The breakfast is set for 10:30 a.m. at Carthage Family Restaurant, 125 N. Garrison Ave. State Rep. Crystal Quade, of Springfield, will be the guest speaker.
Those who want to register or change their address can do so from 10 a.m. to noon at the Carthage location and from 2 to 5 p.m. at Democratic offices at 2001 Empire Ave. in Joplin. Registered voters also can sign three Democrat-supported initiative petitions that, if approved, would impose a higher minimum wage, ethics reform and allow the use of medical marijuana.
