Don’t Get Spooked on November 3rd – Visit ShowMeVotes.com
Showmevotes.com has all the info you need to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and get your slate card! Our tools allow you to do all three in one stop.
Text three of your friends, family, or acquaintances and send them to https://app.showmechange.civicengine.com/ so they can check out all the candidates up and down the ballot, make a plan to vote, and get absentee voting info. October may be a spooky month, but nothing’s scarier than missing your chance to make a difference.
Volunteers Are Our Secret Weapon
We’ve already made thousands of phone calls, had thousands of one-on-one conversations, sent thousands of text messages, and have safely hit thousands of doors, but we need to do more.
Show Off Your Politics With Pride!
You can wear your support, drink out of it, or put it on your wall –– each way, you’re helping Democrats while doing it. Check out the MDP merch store! Order by October 13th to guarantee delivery before the election!
Census Deadline Coming Up
The U.S. Census is crucial to our democracy, ensuring everything from fair representation of our state in the House to where our children go to school. Make sure you and your friends and family help us improve the lives of Missourians directly with your census response!
Rural Town Hall Series Ends on a High Note
Thanks to everyone who attended our Rural Town Hall series! This was a great platform for voters and supporters to get to know many of our awesome candidates.
