State Sen. John Lamping, R-Ladue, wants to move primaries from August to June, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Missouri State Sen. John Lamping, R-Ladue, wants to move primary elections for state and federal offices from August to June. Currently, Congress, the Legislature and many statewide offices hold party primaries on the Tuesday after the first Monday in August of even-numbered years. Lamping said his reason for the proposed change is because a June primary would give candidates more time to communicate with voters before the November general elections, the Post-Dispatch article stated. A Senate committee reportedly held a hearing on the proposal, but did not take any action, according to the Post. (Read the complete Post-Dispatch story here.)
