Associated Industries of Missouri Primary Election Primer
Primary elections can be very important, but no more important than when the primary election IS the election for a seat in the Missouri Senate or the Missouri House of Representatives. This happens when more than one member of a political party runs for a particular House or Senate seat and no candidate files for the seat from any other political party.
On August 7, Missouri voters will choose the winner of these primaries – 38 in all. There are three Republican primaries and two Democrat primaries for Missouri Senate seats. For Missouri House seats, eighteen Republican and fifteen Democrat seats will be decided by voters in the primary election.
