St. Louis citizens are waiting between four to six hours to vote, according to a CNN blog report:

“The county’s board of elections assistant director Dick Bauer said a lengthy ballot and what he expects to be a record turnout have slowed the process. Voters can make as many as 37 selections on the ballot today, and 10 of them are issue choices, said Bauer.”


The report said that “voters in St. Louis County have 25 percent more equipment” than ever before, but some voters are slowing the process even more by using paper ballots as opposed to using the touch-screen machines. -
