What is a Primary Election?

Primary Elections

Missouri has an August statewide primary election in each even-numbered year. The primary is an election contest between members of the same political party. For example, several candidates of the same political party may file for the position of County Treasurer. The August election will determine which candidate will face the candidate for that same position from the opposing political party in the November general election.
