We keep hammering it home because time is running out.

The August 4th election is critical. Expanding Medicaid will propel Democrats and deflate Republicans heading into the big election in November. 

We know that Gov. Parson and the Missouri GOP has done their best to make voting during the pandemic harder and more confusing. And that’s why we need even more resolve not to let them keep us from the ballot box. 

August 4th is 18 days away. Make sure you have a plan to vote. 

If you’re going to vote absentee, your Local Election Authority (LEA) must receive your request by July 22nd at 5PM. Once they mail you your ballot and you mark it, it must be received by them by 7PM on Election Day. 

Download and print your absentee ballot request form here.

Return it to your Local Election Authority (generally your Board of Elections or County Clerk) – find yours here

If you’re going to vote at the polls, some areas – such as Kansas City, Jackson County, Boone County, St. Louis County, St. Louis City, etc – have in-person absentee voting, where you can vote like you normally would, just before the actual election day. 

Dates and hours will vary, so be sure to check with your Local Election Authority. (Find yours here.)

It’s imperative that we do not sit out this election. This is the precursor to November and we must be a solid, united front.
