THE WEEK IN REVIEW

Every Day is Election Day

In-person absentee voting is NOW OPEN in every county across the state! Visit your local Board of Elections or County Clerk’s office during their normal business hours – generally 8AM – 5PM Monday through Friday.

Click here to double check the address and hours for your Board of Elections or County Clerk’s office and then head to the voting booth on Monday morning!

Final EOQ Deadline is THIS Wednesday!

This Wednesday, September 30th is our final End of Quarter deadline for this presidential election year! It also means we’re putting our final plans into place and we must be sure we have the resources to leave everything on the field. Let’s show the Missouri GOP just how loud Democrats can be!

We can push our candidates to victory in 38 days – if you can dig a little deeper, chip in $20.20 before this Wednesday!

Stay tuned for info on our virtual Presidential Debate Watch Party this coming Tuesday night! Democrats from all over the state are invited to join us live on Twitch to enjoy camaraderie and cheer on Joe during the very first 2020 debate!

First Gubernatorial Debate is Postponed!

The much anticipated debate between Nicole Galloway and Mike Parson has been postponed due to the Governor and First Lady having contracted COVID. We wish them a speedy recovery and we’ll get you all the details for this event as soon as it is rescheduled.

Statement on Breonna Taylor

The grand jury’s decision to only indict one officer for charges unrelated to the death of Breonna Taylor isn’t justice for her family and loved ones. It shows the lack of accountability created by our justice system. Not until we hold everyone to the same standard of accountability can we truly feel like progress has been made.
