KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Founding father Thomas Jefferson considered knowledge the key to democracy, noting in a 1789 letter that “wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government.”

With that in mind, it’s important for voters to understand what is on the upcoming ballot for the Nov. 3 general elections.

That’s the best way for voters to learn about the issues and provides an opportunity to do research on the candidates and questions before heading to the polls.

Missouri residents can access most sample ballots via the local clerk’s office or election board websites, but the Missouri Secretary of State’s office also allows voters to look up sample ballots by their registered address.

The Kansas Secretary of State has a similar online portal for sample ballots.
