MISSOURI IS HOLDING ITS DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY ON AUGUST 2 – MAKE SURE YOUR VOICE IS HEARD!
What elections are there in Missouri? What am I voting for?
Missouri will hold a Democratic Primary on August 2 for US Representatives and US Senate as well as your State Representatives and State Senators. The winners of these Democratic primary races will go up against the Republicans in the November 8, 2022 General Election.
All Missouri overseas voters can vote in these crucial races.
In the US Senate race, we have an excellent opportunity to gain a new Democratic seat as Republican Roy Blunt is retiring. And think of the progress Missouri could make in education, health, climate change, and so many other areas if we elect more Democrats to the Missouri State Legislature.
And please vote your full ballot, Missouri state elections are hugely important! State government is responsible for voting and state policies regarding climate change, abortion and reproductive rights, education, healthcare, net neutrality, student loans, and more that affect us no matter where we go around the world.
Note: If you’re an overseas voter who’s never resided in Missouri , you may vote for your US Representative and US Senator, but you aren’t eligible to vote in Missouri state elections.
