Missouri’s 87th District Preps For Monday’s Special Election
ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)– The St. Louis County Election Board says it’s ready for Monday’s special election to finally pick a democratic candidate for state representative from the 87-th district.
That’s the race where two democratic incumbents running against each other because of redistricting were only one vote apart.
Because of a poll-worker error a ”court ordered special election” is being held on Monday so election workers spent time Thursday calibrating the voting machines.
The cost of the special election will be $50,000.
The election board also sent out a letter saying voters would need to bring a signature ID but that’s not true.
So now, a new letter has been sent to voters correctly explaining the rules for Monday’s election.
