Absentee Voting For August Primary
The august primary election is August 7, and Absentee voting for the Primary is available through your County Clerk’s office. Livingston County Clerk and Election Authority Sherry Parks says absentee voting is for those that will not be able to make it to the polls on August 7th.
The election will include one statewide issue, the right to work legislation, known as Proposition A. that reads
“Do the people of the state of Missouri want to adopt Senate Bill 19 (“Right-to-Work”) as passed by the general assembly in 2017, which prohibits as a condition of employment the forced membership in a labor organization (union) or forced payments of dues in full or pro-rata (fair-share); make any activity which violates employees’ rights illegal and ineffective; allow legal remedies for anyone injured as a result of another person violating or threatening to violate employees’ rights; and which shall not apply to union agreements entered into before the effective date of Senate Bill 19?”
This also an election to narrow the races for political office within the party structure.
At the state level, there are republican and democrat races for the US Senate Seat, with multiple candidates on each ballot.
Other contested races include the democrat race for the US House seat for the 6th congressional district.
In Livingston County, the contested races include:

If you are interested in voting absentee, Parks says you can stop at the County Clerks Office during regular business hours.
