Missouri voters are heading to the polls today to decide who they think will have the best shot at state positions for their political party in the general election this November. KSMU's Benjamin Fry visited a Springfield polling place files this report.
It only takes a few minutes, and can have a bigger impact than you might think.
Voting for the Missouri Primary began at 6:00 this morning and will continue until the polls close at 7:00 pm.
Billy Greenly is a ballot judge at the precinct located in the fire station at Holland Ave. and Grand St. in Springfield.
She says she doesn't expect to see the droves of younger voters that turned out for the February primary.
Those who do decide to vote in Springfield can choose among sixty candidates vying for state and local office.
But these choices are spread across three separate party ballots.
There's also an issues-only ballot for voters in Springfield.
Greenly says since this is a primary, you have to choose which ballot you want.
The issues-only ballot is for Springfield voters who will decide whether to continue a sales tax to fund transportation improvements.
When walking into your voting place, all you need is your voter ID card or some other acceptable form of identification.
