October 25, 2022

The midterm election is just around the corner, and many Missouri residents have a long list of candidates and issues to consider as they head to the polls on November 8. As always, the Library is here to connect residents with important information.


How to Vote:

Visit the Missouri Secretary of State’s website to get all the details you need on how to vote this November. Here are a few key pieces of information:

Local Election Guides:

Gathering information about all of the candidates and issues on your ballot can be daunting, but many organizations have compiled election guides so you can find the information in one place. Here are a few:

  • Ballotpedia – This nonpartisan digital encyclopedia of American politics allows you to find what will be on your ballot as well as information about each candidate and issue. Candidate information is gathered through a Ballotpedia survey that candidates fill out themselves.
  • FactCheck.org – A project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, this nonpartisan, nonprofit effort strives to be a “consumer advocate” for voters and reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics.
  • Missouri Voter Outreach Center – In addition to finding your polling place, this resource from the Missouri Secretary of State, allows you to see a list of candidates and issues that will appear on your ballot simply by searching your address.
  • PolitiFact (Missouri) - Owned by the nonprofit Poynter Institute for Media Studies and made possible by their collaboration with the University of Missouri, this resource is a nonpartisan political fact-checking resource.
  • Vote 411 – Provided by the League of Women Voters, this resource is another option for finding the exact candidates and issues on your ballot by searching with your home address. Candidate information is gathered via survey and is unedited by Vote 411.

Local News Coverage:

There are many local and regional news outlets that are working hard to bring election coverage to residents. Here are just a few:

And remember, if you missed the registration deadline for the November election, your local MCPL branch can help you get registered for the next election.
