MEOC was first started in 1989 as an opportunity to bring a National Election Conference to the Midwest. A lot of counties had expressed interest in going, but could not afford the travel. The Secretaries of State from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska decided to put on the Midwest Election Officials Conference. This turned into a four year conference in the odd year following the Presidential Election. The last conference was held in 2009, following the historic 2008 Presidential Election.
The MEOC name has been revived by the Johnson County Election Office to bring a National Conference and National speakers back to the Midwest. We look forward to hosting this conference for years to come.
