(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A statewide question on the ballot for voters of both parties was Amendment 2, which would expand Medicaid in the state and make it available to more Missourians.

With 100% of precincts reporting, the expansion passed 53 to 47 percent with 672,967 voting yes and 590,809 voting no. 

This is a measure that's already passed in 38 states and has been available for several years, but to this point, Missouri has resisted.

Just a little bit more sunshine today across northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. The air quality is much better today with the haze starting to clear out of the area. Tonight will be cool and calm with lows in the mid 60s and light winds. There is a slight chance for isolated showers tonight and tomorrow afternoon, although most of the area should stay dry. Dry and sunny conditions continue into the weekend as temperatures start to warm up again. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and then start to climb into the 90s as we head into the weekend.
