August 2014 Ballot Issues Guide Now Available
On the August ballot this year (the same ballot as your primary election ballot), there are several important issues to vote on. The League of Women Voters has taken a stand on some ballot issues, but not others. On our Ballot Issues Guide, we have reproduced the ballot language and added explanations. When the League has chosen a side, we note this, as well. Naturally, individual League members can and do disagree on issues, but the League as a body takes positions on ballot issues after discussion and debate at our annual state conference, regarding issues touching on existing League positions and priorities at the national or state level.
No matter which political party ballot you pick up when you vote in the Missouri primary election August 5th, you will see these statewide ballot issues. If you choose an “independent” ballot, you will only see ballot issues, not people competing to run for office.
