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.
