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.

Monday saw temperatures climb into the 90s once again and that trend will continue for at least one more day before cooler air moves in by this weekend. Tonight, expect a mild and humid night but we will stay dry. Skies will be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
