Big Voter Turnout Expected for Tuesday

Some big constitutional changes and a large sales tax increase is expected to drive up voter turnout on Tuesday throughout the state, some expect as high as 27 percent, but locally the numbers could be much higher. Franklin County Clerk Debbie Door expects maybe 30 to 35 percent of registered Franklin County voters will weigh in on big local issues like Washington’s annexation and a close and crowded Recorder of Deeds race. Door says farming is important to Franklin County residents, so is low taxes, and that alone could drive up local turnout. Statewide voter turnout on Tuesday is projected at nearly 1.1 million people — about 27 percent of the almost 4.1 million Missourians registered to vote. Polls open at 6 and close at 7 Tuesday night. The County Clerk’s office will accept absentee ballots until 5pm on Monday.
