ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – In St. Louis County, it’s been light at the polls.

Director of Elections Rita Heard Days says officials are seeing something very unusual in North St. Louis County.

“My deputy requested some additional Republican ballots for North County, which is a little odd,” she says. “We’re making those preparations now to get those additional paper ballots out to them.”

She says they do a formula for the distribution of the ballots that lets them know there aren’t a lot of Republicans in North St. Louis County, so they don’t send a lot of Republican ballots out there.

Heard Days says that suggest that people who would not normally vote Republican in North St. Louis County are doing so in this election.

She says voter turnout overall is comparable to the 2010 primary.
