(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Friday to make absentee mail-in ballots available to all eligible Missouri voters. 

The lawsuit cites the risks of requiring voters to be physically present at the polls during the COVID-19 pandemic.

St. Joseph's April elections were postponed until June 2nd.

Voters will decide the fate of a city bond issue and elect two new school board members.

A week and a half ago, there were some controversial elections in Wisconsin that went on despite the coronavirus pandemic.

We ended the weekend with pleasant weather today with sunshine and temperatures in the 60s. Tomorrow looks to be sunny as well with highs reaching the mid 50s. Another cold front is headed our way Monday evening and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. After the cold front moves in on Tuesday, the high temperatures for the area will stay in the 50s and reach the 60s by the end of the week.
