What is a Primary Election?

In Missouri, when you register to vote, you do not state your preference of a political party. There are elections when you can select a ballot for the political party of your choice. These are called primary elections. This is the time when candidates in the same political party vie to be the party candidate in the general election.

At a primary election, voters may choose a political party ballot or a non-partisan ballot which contains only the ballot issue(s).
