Low Voter Turnout in St. Louis City

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – As predicted, voter turnout in St. Louis City is low.

Problems have been few, Republican Director of Elections Gary Stoff tells KMOX.

He says all polling places were open on time, and they haven’t received any complaints of machines not working.

“We have gotten several complaints about supporters of particular candidates maybe becoming a little too aggressive and approaching the voters as they are approaching the polling place,” he says.

Stoff says the roving deputies have been reminding campaign workers to stay 25 feet back from the polling entrance

There was also some confusion on some voter notification cards.

“There were a couple of polling places that had an incorrect address,” he says.

Corrected cards were re-sent, but some voters in South St. Louis did have issues.

The polls are open until 7 p.m.
