The effort to recall Ferguson Mayor Knowles continues. Last week, the St. Louis County Election Board invalidated over 800 signatures.
One response to Ferguson unrest from area leaders has been telling people to register to vote, and it appears they have listened.

In retrospect, many Republican officials may wish the caucuses of 2012 never occurred.
