Polling Places Named for Monday's Carlson-Newman Special Election
The contest happens September 24, 2012, at 16 locations in St. Louis County. Voters in Clayton, Richmond Heights, University City, Ladue and Brentwood will participate.
Sixteen polling places will be available to voters in the special election happening Monday, Sept. 24 between Democrats Stacey Newman and Susan Carlson. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m, and a list of locations is posted below.
"We really hope that people come out and utilize this special election as they should," said Rita Heard Days, director of elections for St. Louis County.
The special election for 87th District state representative is happening because incorrect ballots got handed out in August at a Brentwood polling place, the St. Louis Beacon has reported.
Monday's special election will be paid for by the state of Missouri, not St. Louis County, Days said. That's because the race at issue involves a state representative seat.
The election is expected to cost between $50,000 and $55,000, she said. Sufficient numbers of poll workers have signed up to help, and a few reserves are available if needed.
