(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Buchanan County Clerk Mary Baack-Garvey is offering tips for voters ahead of Tuesday's election.

With an expected turnout of nearly 55 percent, voters may run into long lines at the polls. In addition, a large number of items on the ballot may also slow down the voting process as well.

Baack-Garvey says that there are ways for you to speed up the process. 

"I suggest that everybody do their homework, study the sample ballot," Baack-Garvey said. "Even take a cheat sheet sample ballot with you so that you can work your ballot quicker and get out of there quicker. Especially if you are under a time constraint."

She also recommends that you try to vote during non-peak times. Which are often late morning and early afternoon. 

Either way, you will want to bring your patience if you are voting on Tuesday.

Polls open at 6 a.m. and run until 7 p.m.

We have had rain off and on this Friday afternoon across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Scattered showers will continue off and on through the evening and overnight hours. A few showers could linger through the day Saturday but the rain will be lighter than today and much more scattered. Temperatures will slowly start to warm Sunday into Monday as sunshine returns and conditions start to dry out. Another cold front is headed our way Monday night and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. Temperatures look to stay unseasonably cool through the rest of the next week.
