(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Buchanan County Clerk's Office is ready to go for election day.


Last minute preparations were taking place at election headquarters Monday afternoon. Election officials say volunteers are trained and ready to go to handle tomorrow's crowds.

The Buchanan County Clerk is predicting a 30-percent voter turnout, but is optimistic that more people will come out to vote.

"I hope it gets higher, but with the weather being so cold and it being still icy out. You just never know. People don't like being out in the cold," said Buchanan County Clerk Mary Baack-Garvey.

Polls open at 7:00 a.m.
