A group that presses single women, minorities and millennials to register to vote is apologizing for sending 95,000 mailings listing the wrong Missouri registration deadline.

Casting itself as nonpartisan, the Washington-based Voter Participation Center says the registration forms this month listed Missouri's voter-registration cutoff for the Nov. 8 election as Oct. 17. It's actually Oct. 12, and the center says it has sent out new postcards reflecting that.

Voter turnout in Columbia was low today as residents decide on a $32.3 million bond measure for the city’s sewer system.

Around noon, only about 2,400 people had voted.  Boone County Clerk Wendy Noren said she isn’t quite sure why there has been such the low turnout.

The proposal comes because the city’s need for major sewer improvements. With the bond the city would be able to complete major maintenance on the existing sewer system due to rainwater getting in the system and old pipes.
