(Southwest Tribune, Oct 9, 1868)


To be a “registered” voter in 1868 Missouri, a man had to also be a “qualified” voter. To be a qualified voter, he had to take an oath that he’d “always been truly and loyally on the side of the United States against all enemies thereof, foreign and domestic.” The oath also had a passage about future allegiance.

When you see that a voter had been objected to, someone was questioning his allegiance to the Union. Having to be a qualified voter was meant to keep ex-Confederate soldiers or rebel sympathizers from voting. Therefore, not finding your ancestor on the following voter list is not proof that he wasn’t living in Cedar County in 1868.
