about this state

Hey, Show Me State, why don’t you show us what it looks like when all of you turn out to vote? Don't like that joke? Then don't tee it up for us like that. Also, you share a border with EIGHT states, meaning you have the most neighbors of any state in the country. Why not set a good example? It’s just neighborly. Here's where it starts: Missouri will be holding its statewide primary and general elections on August 2 and November 8, respectively. Local elections will be taking place in February, March, and April. Here’s everything you need to know about Election Day in 2022. (Source: Ballot Ready)
