Area polls running smoothly
COLUMBIA - Voters hit the polls across mid-Missouri Tuesday, and many said they were able to get in and out of polling locations without difficulty.
The "voter check-in" at Columbia Public Library had very few people standing in line, making it easy for voters to get on with their day after casting their ballot.
"I went in and they wanted my identification," said Ramon Pagni. "I gave them my identification. They told me what booth to go in and that was it."
Among the biggest issues for voters in Columbia were Propositions One and Two.
"The number of constitutional amendments was overwhelming I think," said Alison Martin. "And the two local issues? It was fantastic to vote on those."
Polls will remain open until 7 p.m.
