Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft’s office is also hoping to register thousands of voters.

The office mailed more than 742,000 postcards to Missouri households to get residents registered to vote or to check their voter registration.

Oct. 10 is the last day to register for the Nov. 6 general election.
