Jackson County Democrats Slam Guv Parson Over Coronavirus Missouri Mail-In Voting
The "Galloway for Guv" campaign is running a campaign promo disguised as a petition calling out Missouri Guv Parson for his pandemic response.
Here's the latest email blast and the election 2020 argument from Jackson County supporters . . .
Voting Is a Right; It Shouldn't Be a Risk
Every Missourian should be able to vote. This value isn’t partisan and has nothing to do with politics.
Voters should have their voice heard at the ballot box without fear of getting sick from the coronavirus.
Our entire nation saw what happened in Wisconsin this past week. Most polling places were forced to close down and voters in Milwaukee were packed into only 5 polling locations on Election Day. The National Guard had to staff the polling stations and they, along with voters, put their lives on the line so that an election could take place.
It doesn’t have to be like this. Missourians deserve the ability to safely cast their ballot even during this unprecedented pandemic. We have multiple elections coming up.
The Republican government in Missouri has continuously passed the buck on voting access: Governor Parson, after saying that voting access was a partisan issue, later passed it down to the Secretary of State. Ashcroft passed it down to the legislature and local authorities. Local boards have asked for direction from the state. Auditor and candidate for Governor Nicole Galloway has been on the side of the majority when it comes to ballot access and safety since the beginning of the crisis: citizens shouldn't have to risk their own health or the safety of others to get to vote. Let's make sure that opinion is heard by Parson so we can get no excuse absentee and early voting.
You decide . . .
