Acting Police Chief Kenneth Gregory speaks at a crime town hall Oct. 30, 2021. He is joined by Reps. Jim Murphy and Michael O’Donnell, County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell and South County Precinct Commander Jim Schneider.

State Reps. Jim Murphy and Michael O’Donnell, both R-Oakville, are holding a town hall meeting to give Missourians a chance to learn about the state’s efforts to protect the voting process.

The two legislators will host an election integrity town hall Saturday, Feb. 19 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. at Mehlville High School’s Nottlemann Auditorium, 3200 Lemay Ferry Road. The town hall was previously scheduled for January but was rescheduled due to weather.

Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft will speak at the event. Other speakers include St. Louis County Directors of Elections Rick Stream and Eric Fey, House Elections Committee Chairman Rep. Dan Shaul, and St. Charles County Director of Elections Kurt Bahr.

The event will focus on topics such as election security, procedures, vote counting, polling, absentee ballots, voter identification, legislation under consideration by the General Assembly, and the shortage of election workers. The event will also include a question-and-answer session for those in attendance.
