Show-Me-State residents are encouraged to volunteer to help out with the upcoming Primary Election on August 5th.
Volunteers working the poll will check in voters, answer questions, and make sure every eligible voter can cast a ballot. Items on the upcoming ballot include the 'Right to Farm Amendment'. If approved by voters, that measure would guarantee farmers and ranchers the right to engage in their livelihoods and produce food for others. Also on the ballot, voters will be asked to vote on a ballot measure to increase the state sales tax. That increase will be by 3/4 of a cent. If approved, that increase would go towards helping Mo-DOT pay for road improvements across the state.
Once again, the primary election will be held on Tuesday, August 5th. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at one of the polling locations, please visit www.sos.mo.gov/pollworker to sign up.
