Volunteer with Advocates this Election Season

by admin

Tuesday, August 2 was Missouri’s primary election to decide which candidates will represent each party in the November 8 general election. We are pleased to report that in 73 percent of the races in which Advocates of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri made an endorsement, an Advocates-endorsed candidate won!

Over the course of this primary, Advocates volunteers and staff talked to voters at the doors, on the phones, through email, mail, and text to turn out voters for candidates who support sexual and reproductive health care. Advocates volunteers filled 57 volunteer shifts and worked 152 hours in the days and weeks leading up to August 2. If you would like to get involved as an Advocates volunteer, please contact Stacy.Sherrod@ppslr.org for Southwest Missouri or Alaina.Smith@ppslr.org for the rest of the state.

Thank you for turning out to vote in the primary. We look forward to seeing you at the polls on November 8! Our updated list of candidates endorsed by Advocates of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri is below. Incumbents’ names are bolded.
