Received this e-mail today from State Auditor Nicole Galloway’s (D. MO) gubernatorial campaign:
This is simple — Missourians should be able to vote without putting their lives at risk. It shouldn't be a partisan issue. We need an order to allow no-excuse absentee and early voting. And we need it now.
Every Missourian should be able to vote. This value isn’t partisan and has nothing to do with politics.
Voters should have their voice heard at the ballot box without fear of getting sick from the coronavirus.
Our entire nation saw what happened in Wisconsin this past week. Most polling places were forced to close down and voters in Milwaukee were packed into only 5 polling locations on Election Day. The National Guard had to staff the polling stations and they, along with voters, put their lives on the line so that an election could take place.
It doesn’t have to be like this. Missourians deserve the ability to safely cast their ballot even during this unprecedented pandemic. We have multiple elections coming up. This is urgent!
We must do better.
Galloway for Governor
