About Missouri's Primary Elections

  • This is a primary election, so you first declare your party: Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or Constitution Party.  
  • You will then be presented with a list of candidates for that party; the winners from each party will meet in the final elections in November
  • You can declare any party you wish.  You don't have to choose the party you chose last time, the party you usually vote for, or follow any other rule--by Missouri law, you simply declare to the election official which party's primary you wish to vote in.
  • You can also declare "Non-partisan".  That means you will vote only on ballot issues, not any any party's primary candidates.
