Techsoup, a company that coordinates charitable donations to non-profits (normally for a small fee), is offering Microsoft Office 365 Online to Faith Based (not necessarily 501c3) organizations. More information is here: https://bit.ly/3eF5TPa.
Included in the package are 10 licenses for downloadable software that can be installed locally, not just accessed from the cloud. Does your church do word processing i.e. bulletins, programs, mailings, etc.? This offer could benefit you!
If you still need to register for a class, you may do so here.
You can follow this link to join the Zoom training sessions, only those who have registered for a class will be directed to the correct breakout room.
Saint Louis County Residents - Did you know you could vote at ANY St. Louis County Polling Place? That and other information is available on this flyer from the County Election Website. The County now prints ballots on demand and can do so at any of it's polling locations based on where you are registered. Now you can vote near your job OR use the tool discussed in this article to find the polling place with the shortest wait time.
We encourage every registered voter to participate in the November 3, 2020 General Election!
If you are registered and prefer not to go to the polls on election day, the absentee / mail-in ballot application for this election is now available on the Missouri Secretary of State website (https://www.sos.mo.gov/elections). The last day you can request a Mail-In or Absentee Ballot is October 21. You will also find a lot of other voting related information there.
If you need your ballot envelope notarized, you can contact the church for assistance.
We heard someone say "Your vote is your voice".
As of Today, October 9, 2020 a couple of court rulings have muddied the waters. While we suggest adhering to the rules listed on the Secretary of State website listed above, we want you to know about the rulings:
1. According to this article, a Federal judge has ruled that Missouri Election authorities should count all absentee and mail-in ballots whether they are notarized or not as long as they are received by election day.
2. And This Article says a different court ruled that mail-in ballots could be dropped off at election offices rather than mailed. The requirement that mail-in ballots can only be returned by mail is lifted by this decision.
Understand that these rulings may be appealed and we again suggest following the original rules laid out on the Secretary of State website if at all possible. Do know however, that the fight to make voting easier is still going on!
