Voters are finding long lines around Missouri while turning out for an election that will reshape the state's political landscape. Missouri election officials had predicted record turnout even before voters began heading to the polls Tuesday.
In St. Louis, lines formed before dawn. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that some voters arrived an hour before the polls opened. Across the state, The Kansas City Star reports unusually long lines in some areas. Fifty-six-year-old Jim Duff says the line he encountered at a south Kansas City church is the longest he's ever experienced.
