High interest nationally, but low turnout locally is expected in today’s presidential primary in Missouri. The state’s election authority Secretary of State Matt Blunt says he expects only about 23 percent of eligible voters to turn out in Missouri today, maybe a few more now that St. Louis Congressman Richard Gephardt has dropped out of the race making the state more of a race. But he says that’s still far short of what he would really like to see. Blunt is pleased Missouri is playing such a prominent role in national poltics and he would like to see more presidential primaries in Missouri’s future.
