election guide 2020
In order to support our mission of recruiting and training women to diversify elections in Missouri, Missouri M.A.D.E. has put together an election guide to highlight the women running for office in Missouri this year.
Since 1980, voter turnout among women has surpassed that of men. In 2019, the number of women in Congress reached a record 131. While there are record numbers of women in Congress, they still make up less than 25% of its members.
Representation of people from different genders, races and sexual orientations is extremely important to the legislative process. Bringing these new perspectives to policymaking gives a voice to those who are too often left out of leadership spaces.
Missouri M.A.D.E. is a non-profit, non-partisan organization and does not endorse any candidates on this list. We simply wish to increase exposure to underrepresented candidates.
