Missouri Primary Election and Appointments Project Offer Opportunities

Missouri voters will head to the polls Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2022. In the primary election, voters will have the opportunity to choose nominees for U.S. Senate and House races, state Senate and House seats and many local county/municipal seats.

Missouri has open primaries, meaning a voter can choose any party’s ballot, even if it doesn’t match their voter registration. 

Voters can look up their sample ballots on the secretary of state’s website if they did not receive one in the mail. 

Although Missouri Gov. Mike Parson recently signed a new voting bill into law, those changes aren’t in effect until the November election. Read more about Missouri’s new voting law, which will require a photo ID to vote.
