Today is Election Day in many cities and counties across the state!
But in an unbelievable moment last week, Gov. Parson told thousands of Missourians in his daily briefing that if any of them have safety concerns about the election today, just “don’t go out and vote.”
He’s using his bully pulpit in front of the TV cameras to dissuade you and I from coming out to vote for our city councils and mayors and school boards.
We have to call that what it is – voter suppression.
This is just a practice run for what Gov. Parson will do when August 4th arrives.
And it’s the same thing he’ll do when November 3rd arrives.
So, why not take the opportunity to prepare our response?
Take some simple precautions like wearing your mask, using your hand sanitizer, double check your polling place (some have been consolidated) and then cast your ballot.
Have a safe and happy Election Day and thank you for exercising your civic duty!
P.S. Got friends who need to double check their polling places? Got friends who want to register new Democratic voters? Forward this email on! And remember, polls are open from 6AM-7PM.
