(St. Charles, MO) – Tuesday is the big day. Are you informed and ready to vote?
This year presents Missouri with a unique election cycle. While there is a statewide office up for election, Republican Auditor Tom Schweich faces no Democratic opponent and will, in all probability, be elected since he faces only third party opposition.
There are some proposed state Constitutional amendments on the ballot as well. See our previous shows for a look at Amendments 6 and 10.
That makes the importance of this Election Day focuses on local races; particularly races for the State Legislature. The outcome of those local races add up to big decisions on how the state will operate in 2015 and beyond.
This week, Ryan Johnson from the conservative Missouri Alliance for Freedom and Sean Nicholson from the liberal Progress Missouri offer their perspectives on what’s at stake and why they each think their side will make gains on Tuesday.
