Get ready to vote.

Polls open at 6 a.m. Tuesday and close at 7 p.m. for voting on the primary ballot.

Three issues may appear on voters' ballots, depending on their address.

All registered Missouri voters will have a chance to vote on Missouri Proposition A, also known as the Right to Work Referendum. A "yes" indicates the voter's choice to uphold contested legislation, Senate Bill 19, which would enact a right-to-work law. This law would mandate no person can be required to join a labor union or pay dues to a labor union as a condition of employment. A "no" indicates the voter's choice to overturn SB19.

Within the Fulton Public School District, voters may vote on Proposition K, an operating tax rate increase of $0.5698 that would be used to maintain mental health services, create competitive compensation and provide resources to meet student academic needs, according to the district's website.

A taxpayer with a home valued at $100,000 would pay an extra $108 in taxes a year if the levy passes, according to the school.

Finally, some voters in non-incorporated areas will be asked to vote on the Callaway County Sewer District Question. A "yes" vote is a vote to establish a sewer district, which would be funded by users and will help rehabilitate failing sewer systems in county subdivisions, according to the Callaway County Health Department.

Primaries for a number of contested local and state races will also be on the ballot. View the full ballot at bit.ly/ccballot.
