On August 5th - Educate Yourselves and Go Vote
And Encourage Family and Friends to Do Likewise!
On August 5th, the primary elections will decide several critical races. Make sure you know the positions of the candidates before you vote. You need to know what organizations are supporting them. If they are incumbents or past legislators find out how they voted on critical pieces of legislation. Missouri Right to Life PAC puts in much work and effort to track votes and survey candidates and then makes endorsements accordingly.
