NEW PRIMARY LAW.
i'2!a Points cf thi Kew Law Tfcat

p All Aliks.
f Under the law providing for
party nominations by direct Tote,
approved March 18, 1907, all can
didates for elective oHices must
be nominated by a primary held
8t the regular polling places of
acii precinct on the first Tues
day of August, 190, and every
two years thereafter. This law
does not apply to spcial elec
tions to fill vacancies, nor to the
office of County Superintendent
of School., nor to city officers
not elected at a general State
election, nor to town, village and
school district officers.
. At least 00 days .before 'such
August primary, the Secretary
of State notifies the County
Clerk of each county that candi
dates are to be nominated for
designated offices. 'Within ten
days after receiving such notice
the County Clerk publishes it in
two papers in the county. Tins
publication must appear once a
week for six weeks, and js for
the purpose of notifying the vo
ters of the county that nomina
tions are in order.
There are two ways in which a
person desiring to run, for the
party nomination for a county
office may have his name printed
on the official ballot used at the
First. He may file with the
County Clerk a declaration, Riv
ing his residence an$ stating that
he is a candidate for the nomina
tion for such office at. the hands
ot some designated political
This declaration should be filed
at leant sixty days before the
first Tuesday in August proceed
ing the general election.
Sfx)Ni. Or a nomination pa
per in bhalf of the candidate
intybe tiled with the County
Ork at least sixty days prior to
the first Tuesday in August.
This nomination paper should
hive the specified form in the
primary law written or printed
at the top of each separate sheet.
The signatures on a sheet which
docs not have this form at tl'ie
top thereof will not be counted.
Karh signer of a nomination pa
per shall sign but one such paper
for the same office. All signers
of each separate nomination pa"
per, for a county office, must re"
side in the same precinct; sq that
there must be a separate nomi
nation paper for each precinct in
whiih signatures are sought.
Raeh signer must sign his name
and residence or street number,
and the date of signing.
Nomination papers for county
offices must be signed by at leat
threoper c nt of the voter of
tho parly of the candidate in at
least unoixth of the election
prfcir.ct of the county, and in
the aggregate by not less than
three per cent nor more than ten
per cent of the total vote of his
party in such county. The basis
of percentage is the vote of the
party for the presidential elector.
Each candidate must iilo with
his nomination paper or papers a
declaration that he will qualify as
such officer if nominated and
elected. When nomination pa
por are received which contain
ten per cent of the party vote, the
Clerk will not receive further
nomination papers for the same

As to candidates for the office
of Kcpresentative to the Genera
Assembly of Missouri, Section 9
f f the r.tw law has tho U V.cwlr.5:
"Provided that the office of Rep
resentative to the General As
sembly of Missouri shall be re
garded as s county office under
the provisions of this net." There
fore the procedure governing in
the nomination of county officers
would apply to the case of Repre
sentatives to the Assembly.
Vacancies wearing efter the
primary, are filled by the party
committee of the county, district j
or State, as the case may be.
County committeemen are elec
ted at the August primary elec
tion. No nomination is neces
sary. Each voter may write in
the space left on his ticket for
that purpose, the came of one
qualified elector of the ward or
township, as the case may be, for
his ward or township committee
man, and the one having the
greatest number of votes in such
ward or township shall be the
member of the party committee
in such county.
There must be as many sepa
rate tickets is there are parties
entitles to participate, and also a
non-partisan ticket for non parti
sans, who are properly nomina
ted for the primary.
The names are printed on the
ticket alphabetically, according
to the surnames, under the title
of the respective offices. A can
didate cannot have "his name
printed on more th3n one ticket.
If nominated on more than one
ticket, he must indicate in writ
ing on what ticket he wishes to
have his name.
The party committee of each
party may apjw;nt 111 writing
over their signatures, two party
representatives at each precinct,
with one alternate for each, who
shall act as challengers for tln ir
respective parties, and haxe the
power prescribed by law as in
Each qualified voter shall be
entitled to receive from the judg
es of election one ballot of the
political party participating in
such election for which he de
sires to vote. The two judges of
election having charge of the bal
lot with their names or initials
on the back of eah ballot with
indelible pencil and also the num
ber of the ballot voted. No other
writing shall be placed tn the
back of the ballot.
If any voter writes upon his
ticket the name of a person who
is a candidate for the same office
upon some other ticket, this bl
lot' shall be counted for such per
son only as a candidate of the
parly upon whose ticket his nan e
is written, and shall in no c;el e

candidate upon any other ticket.
