Informed Voter Coalition

The Informed Voter Coalition is a nonpartisan group dedicated to empowering voters and fostering engagement between candidates and citizens. Their mission is to provide unbiased information about candidates running for office, facilitating informed decision-making in our communities.

The Informed Voter Coalition approached Show Me Christian County to act as a liaison for communicating School Board candidates in the Christian County area for the upcoming elections. This collaboration stems from the Coalition's expansion of focus to include Christian County candidates alongside those in the Springfield area. Rest assured, the Coalition has no hidden agendas and will not endorse or support any candidates.

Become informed before election day so your vote is cast for the candidates that align with your beliefs and standards! To help guide voters, the Informed Voter Coalition is again producing a series of nonpartisan interviews with candidates to air during the noon hour on KSMU Ozarks Public Radio (91.1 FM) between March 18-22. No registration is required -  tune into KSMU at noon that week!

Tuesday, March 19 - Ozark Public Schools
Wednesday, March 20 - Willard Public Schools
Thursday, March 21 - Springfield Public Schools (4 candidates)
Friday, March 22 - Springfield Public Schools (3 candidates)
