Democratic presidential preference primary election reminder


To the editor:

This is a reminder that the Missouri Democratic Party will hold its statewide presidential preference primary election on one day, March 23.

In Howell County, the Democratic Presidential Preference Primary Election will be held at the West Plains Civic Center from 8 a.m. until noon in the Redbud Room. Any registered voter from the entire state of Missouri who is not registered as a Republican may vote in this election.

Those who have requested mail-in ballots from the Missouri Democratic Party must either mail them back to be received no later than 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 23, or mail-in ballots may be brought to the Redbud Room of the West Plains Civic Center on the day of the presidential primary and deposited in the ballot box.

This year voters may choose to include a party affiliation in their voter registration. This may be done at the Secretary of State’s website, www.sos.mo.gov, or at the Howell County Clerk’s office at 35 Court Square, Room 200 in West Plains. Although it is not necessary to be registered as a Democrat to vote in the Democratic Presidential Preference Primary on March 23, it will be required of anyone wishing to be a delegate to the district, state or national conventions which follow.

We encourage all Democrats to participate in this first step in choosing our candidate for president.

Thank you,

Co-chairs, Howell County Democratic Committee
