While the League wants to increase voter turnout, members are concerned about a proposal by Secretary of State Jay Aschcroft to make more local elections partisan.
“There are better ways to increase voter turnout,” says LWVMO President Marilyn McLeod. “A simple one would be to make mail-in ballots as widely available as they were in 2020.
McLeod said before the state considers a radical change like eliminating nonpartisan elections, it should first make sure it’s as easy as possible to cast a ballot.
Turnout for the April 2021 municipal elections was very low, ranging from 9.87 percent in Clay County to 29.09 percent in St. Louis City.
