Color of the Alzheimer’s Association.
The fight against Alzheimer’s isn’t a red or blue issue; it’s both. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s, the most expensive disease in the nation. Barring the development of medical breakthroughs to prevent, stop or slow Alzheimer’s disease, these numbers will rapidly increase.
The Alzheimer’s Association is leading the fight to make Alzheimer’s a national priority. Learn how you can get involved and move us toward our vision of a world without Alzheimer’s disease®.
About the Alzheimer’s Association
The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
The Association is the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer’s research and care initiatives at the state and federal level.

Absentee Voting in Missouri
Missouri has loosened absentee voting restrictions for the 2020 August primary and November general election.
The short version of the changes is:
--If you are confined, ill, or at high risk of COVID-19, you may vote absentee with no notary required. High risk includes being over the age of 65 which applies to many of our members.
--If you are a permanent absentee voter, no notary is required
--All other voters may vote by mail but ballots must be notarized
