JEFFERSON CITY - Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan expects just 23 percent of registered Missouri voters to be at the polls Tuesday, February 7th for the state's Presidential Primary.

Missouri attracted more than 1.4 million voters to the polls four years ago on "Super Tuesday".

Missouri law still requires the primary to be on February 7th. Last fall's legislative session failed to pass legislature that would move the Presidential Primary from February to March.

Missouri law does not require parties to use results from the primary to award delegates. Both the democratic and republican parties will turn to the caucuses to determine the future of the candidates. The GOP will hold a caucus on March 17th. The Democratic Party will meet later on March 26th.

All polling locations will open at 6 a.m. Tuesday, and close at 7 p.m. that evening. Those in line by 7 p.m., will still be allowed into the polling place. Voters must bring one copy of acceptable identification to the polls. For all acceptable id's check out the Missouri Secretary of State's website.
