Elected State Auditor

Nicole Galloway

On November 6, 2018, a general election in the U.S. state of Missouri was held for the post of State Auditor of Missouri. The election for Missouri State Auditor coincided with the U.S. federal midterm elections that were held throughout all 50 states, as well with other state legislative and local races in Missouri. Missouri's Class 1 United States Senate seat was also up for election on November 6, 2018.[1]

This post last went up for election on November 4, 2014, and then-incumbent Republican State Auditor Tom Schweich won reelection without Democratic opposition.[2]

Incumbent Democratic State Auditor Nicole Galloway, who was appointed to the post by former Governor of Missouri Jay Nixon in 2015 following the death of Schweich,[3] sought and won election to a full term.[4][5]

Following the Republican victories in the elections on November 8, 2016 for Governor of Missouri, U.S. Senate, Lieutenant Governor, Missouri State Treasurer, Attorney General, and Secretary of State, Galloway and U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill became the only two remaining Democratic statewide officeholders in Missouri.[6] McCaskill's failed re-election campaign in 2018 made Galloway the state's only Democratic statewide officeholder and only female statewide elected official. Her victory also marks the only Democratic win in a statewide election in Missouri since 2012. [7]

The primary elections for this race were held on August 7, 2018. The Democrats nominated incumbent Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway, while the Republicans nominated attorney Saundra McDowell.[8][9]
