Secretary of State releases unofficial voter turnout
JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Secretary of State's office said 35 percent of registered Missouri voters participated in Tuesday's midterm election, according to unofficial reports.
"I want to thank the local election authorities and poll workers for all of their hard work in the days and weeks leading up to the election and especially on Election Day itself," Kander said. "Every election has important issues at stake, and this one was no different. I applaud the Missourians who made it to the polls to participate in our democracy and make their voice heard."
Secretary of State Jason Kander said Knox, Schuyler and Worth counties had the highest voter turnout in the state, reporting more than 50 percent turnout.
Kander said Amendment 3, the constitutional amendment that would have changed how Missouri teachers are hired, fired and promoted, received the most attention on the ballot.
Law requires the votes be certified by December 9.
