Today’s picks

  • [Election]KSPR: Today is not the most important election of your life. Tuesday is not the most important election of your life– that’s what experts will tell you.  In fact, they say it’s the politicians much closer to home that will have the most direct impact on you day in and day out.   First, here are a few facts about tomorrow’s election: an incumbent president runs for reelection pretty much every 8 years, there’s a senate race in Missouri twice every six years, the election of the entire House of U.S. Representatives happens every 2 years.  And then there are your local officials– some are running Tuesday too, but odds are they’re not the reason you’re going to the polls.
  • [Election]OzarksFirst: VOTERS: What you need to know today. The State of Missouri requires voters to show proper identification when voting. You simply need to take one of several acceptable forms of identification to your polling place.  Currently, the following types of identification are those permissible by law:
    • Identification issued by the state of Missouri, an agency of the state, or a local election authority of the state    Identification issued by the United States government or agency thereof
    • Identification issued by an institution of higher education, including a university, college, vocational and technical school, located within the state of Missouri
    • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that contains the name and address of the voter
    • Driver’s license or state identification card issued by another state


  • [Election]KSPR: Lines expected to start before polls open. Greene County election officials predict long lines at most polling places Tuesday.  They said Monday the busiest voting times will likely be early Tuesday morning when polls open at 6 o’clock, during the noon hour, and from 4:30 p.m. until polls close at 7 p.m. Voters must be in line by 7 o’clock Tuesday evening to vote. o find a sample ballot for your county, click here
