(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 are waking up to mostly cloudy skies and temperatures into the middle to upper 60s this Monday morning. Monday is looking to be another dry & quiet day for us with partly sunny skies skies. Showers and a few thunderstorms are expected to develop to our south near Kansas City and the I-70 corridor so we can't rule out a slim chance for a stray shower for us. Highs are going to be a few degrees below average in the lower 80s.
