Absentee and mail-in voting for the November 3 general election are underway in Missouri. Though we started endorsing in this election on September 10, nearly two months before the election, we feel the need to publish a ballot of all of our endorsements before we have argued for those endorsements we saved for last, including the presidential ticket of Joe Biden/Kamala Harris (not that one single person who knows this newspaper would doubt that we will endorse Biden/Harris over Trump/Pence with all of our vigor and might).
New early mail-in voting options provided in response to the COVID-19, which also is spurring many more people to vote absentee than usual, compel us to publish all of our endorsements now in an accessible ballot format. Come back next week, the final edition before the election, for our arguments in support of those endorsements we are making here for the first time.
