The ballot for the August 7 primary election in Missouri is rather top heavy as there are plenty of contested races for federal and statewide office: U.S. Senator, Governor, Lt. Governor.

Most of the local races are uncontested, though, with the exception of two in Clark County.

Incumbent Roger Sedore (D) is being challenged for his seat as Western District Commissioner by Paul Brotherton (D) and Ed Knupp (D).

Larry Saxton (R) and Henry Dienst (R) will square off in the primary for the opportunity to face Eastern District Commissioner Jerry Neyens (D) in November.
