Looking to get involved in local or national campaigns?

November will be a mid-term election, which means there are many campaigns already in full force. Working on a campaign can give you great insight into an individual, a political party, or the democratic process itself.  Here in the Ozarks, there are several campaigns and campaign headquarters to choose from. Even if you don't consider yourself a politically active person, or maybe you don't affiliate with one party over another, it is an exciting process in which to participate.
