Registered List of VOTERS in Cedar Co., Mo.

For the year 1868

(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
