Some polls indicate there’s a greater interest nationwide in the presidential election – much earlier than just four years ago. Missouri’s election authority,Secretary of State Matt Blunt, believes that could be attributed to the nomination process for Senator John Kerry and President Bush, for all practical purposes, isalready over. But Blunt is not sure this will translate into more voters in this state going to polls on that first Tuesday in November. Blunt says Missouri voters typically turn out better than the national average with 57 percent of eligible voters going to the polls in 2000. He says it’s good news that more people seem to be interested in the presidential race this time around, but he says there’s a real danger that with this much lead time people could get burned out on campaign talk.
