Restore Our Voice: Be a Candidate


Legal Wall
So many words, so little wisdom...

You might be thinking, "I'm not qualified." That's nonsense. The truth is, you're probably better qualified than most of the legislators we have, just by being honest and free of strings.

Do not let the legal-babble in laws scare you. Our state was not meant to be a government of the lawyers, by the lawyers, and for the lawyers. It's meant to be of the people. People like you and me. We deserve laws that we can read and understand on our own.

That's why we need you, a citizen-legislator, to break the lawyer-legislator monopoloy.

So, if you're ready to work for real change, we will help you and support you. Email volunteermovement@hushmail.com, or contact Jon Schuessler.

Needed Candidates for the Missouri House

The Missouri House has 163 members. All of its seats are open for election every 2 years. In nearly half (46%) of those seats the voters had no say, because the candidates were unopposed by the other party.

We deserve a choice!

The following Independents and third-party candidates have agreed to run for the Missouri House:

We can always use your candidacy. Even though it is too late to be certified for ballot access in 2016, the election in 2018 will be here before you know it!  The sooner in advance we know of your intentions, the better prepared we'll be.

Our needs: If you qualify and would like to run, you should begin thinking about the 2018 election. If you find yourself at odds with our ideas, consider instead running as an independent. We will support you wholeheartedly.

The following maps show the current certified list of candidates according to the Missouri Secretary of State's office.

Needed Candidates for the Missouri Senate

There are 34 seats in the Missouri Senate. Senators serve for 4 years. The Senate only elects half of its members in every election. So, in this election, 17 seats are closed (the even-numbered seats), and 17 are open (the odd-numbered seats).

In the last election, 59% of the candidates were unopposed. Overall, one-third of the senators were also unopposed in their primary, giving the voters no choice, and no voice.

In mid-2015, two senators resigned, one over sexual harassment, the other to earn more money. Those two districts have been unrepresented ever since.

This is not democracy! You can help restore it.

The following Independents or third-party candidates have agreed to run for the Missouri Senate:

Our needs: Because only half of the sentate seats are open, you may not be eligible due to where you live. We urge you to consider a representative seat first, because our needs there are much greater. You must contact us before May 30th if you qualify and would like to run.

If you find yourself at odds with our ideas, consider instead running as an independent. We will support you wholeheartedly.

The following maps show our progress. They will be updated every week until the November election.

Executive Offices

There are 6 elected executives in Missouri. Five of these offices are open for election in 2016: Governor, Lieutenant Governor, State Treasurer, Secretary of State, and Attorney General. The salary of the Lieutenant Governor is the lowest of the five, at $86,000 per year. All executive officers are elected for four-year terms. They are expected to be available throughout the year.

Our executives can do a great deal of harm if the wrong people are chosen. You can read examples about three of our current executives by clicking here. Two of these three men are currently campaigning to be Governor, one Democrat and one Republican.

It's time we chose Door Number Three.

The following independent or third-party candidates are running for executive office:

There are many ways that you can help the Volunteer Party besides running for office.
