Election Day is here, which means some TV ads will cease, but new ones will begin.

Though winners in today’s partisan primary still need to win in November, some races will effectively end with today’s results. Examples include Missouri’s 1st US House district. The district is deep blue so the winner of today’s Democratic primary will easily win in November. I hope that person is Cori Bush!

St, Louis County isn’t as blue as the city, but voters last elected a Republican for County Executive in 1986. The city’s “county” offices are the same way — the winner of the Democratic primary will be the winner on November.

Based on the recent non-scientific Sunday Poll, I’m likely preaching to the choir.

Q: Missouri’s midterm primary is Tuesday, will you be voting?

  • I’m a Missouri resident, but not registered to vote: 1 [3.85%]
  • I’m not a Missouri resident: 3 [11.54%]
  • I’ve already voted absentee: 2 [7.69%]
  • I’m a registered Missouri voter, but I won’t be voting in the midterm primary: 0 [0%]
  • I’m a registered Missouri voter and I will be voting on Tuesday: 20 [76.92%]
  • Unsure/No Answer: 0 [0%]

It’ll be interesting to look at turnout from today’s election and compare that with 4 years ago. I’d think both city & county will have higher turnout than it did in 2014. Click here to find your poling place and list of candidates/issues — anywhere in Missouri.
