Marshall County Debuts New Website For Voters

Marysville, Kansas—The Marshall County Clerk is excited to announce the launch of a new election website to better meet the needs of voters, candidates, and media in Marshall County.

Marshall County Clerk and Election Official Sonya L. Stohs explains the new website, www.marshallcountyelections.org, has been put together to meet the needs of the community while still saving county resources.

“Instead of working with a website vendor, which would have been very costly, we decided to build our website ourselves, with the help of a nonprofit civic tech organization. Our new website’s user-friendly layout allows voters to easily find the information they are looking for most, like example ballots and polling place locations.”

The Clerk’s Office worked with the Center for Technology and Civic Life, a Chicago-based nonprofit that combines research, design, and training to help election administrators provide civic information to the public.

“We see this website as an important part of our public service and outreach,” says Election Clerk Danielle Salcedo. “Increasingly we’re seeing that people want elections to fit their lifestyles, and we think having a really effective, simple, easy-to-use website is key to that. It means people can register, prepare to vote, find their polling place, and find answers to other questions quickly and easily.”

The website is live at www.marshallcountyelections.org. Readers are encouraged to visit the site often to learn about upcoming elections, deadlines, and changes in election legislation and technology.

The Clerk’s office also provides information using Facebook. You can follow the office at www.facebook.com/marshallcountyelections.
