(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Center for American Progress conducted a study in order to determine how vulnerable election systems are to hacking.

According to the research, Missouri received a "D" grade for security systems while Kansas received an "F."

The study looked at data including whether if states conducted post-election audits or if they used paper absentee audits as well as if they used cybersecurity systems for voting machines.

Another warm and humid day across much of northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. The region could see a few storms as we head into Saturday morning. Today temperatures will rise into the upper 80s but it will feel like close to 100 degrees.
