(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Today is the last day to register to vote in Missouri at 5 p.m.

Voters in the Show-Me-State will head to the polls to decide who sits in the White House, congress, and governor's mansion.

Buchanan county election officials say they plan on tallying up registered voters today but they think there's about 53,000 signed up to vote next month.

The exact figure according to Missouri's head election official is 52,727. That's down by about 270 compared to 2018 and not on trend with rising statewide numbers.

4.27 million Missourians are registered to vote which is up by more than 60,000 in the midterm elections.

“October 7 at 5 is the last day somebody can register for the first time so if you're 17 and a half and know you are going to be 18 on election day, the time is now to get registered,” Buchanan county clerk Mary Baack-Garvey said. “If you just moved into the county and you're not registered yet, that's who needs to register.”

Baack-Garvey adds that if you are already in the system and just need to update your address, you have plenty of time and can even do it on election day.

You can register online, by mail or in person. head over to Missouri's Secretary of State website.

A cold front is currently moving through our area this morning dropping temperatures into the lower 40s and upper 30s. Today will be a cool day with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s with increasing clouds. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s tonight. We could see a few areas of light rain and drizzle this evening, but precipitation chances will start to increase overnight into tomorrow morning. With the sub freezing temperatures, precipitation will transition from light rain and drizzle in the evening to snow overnight into Tuesday morning. Snowfall will continue through the morning hours on Tuesday before transitioning to a rain/snow mix while it exits the area. Most areas will see around 1-3 inches. Accumulations will stay mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces, but expect slushy road conditions Tuesday morning. Conditions will slowly start to improve for the rest of the work week with sunshine returning and temperatures slowly warming. Rain chances will return for the end of the work week.
