Missouri’s secretary of state of projecting a 30 to 35 percent voter turnout for today’s (Tuesday) primary election.

Jefferson City Republican Jay Ashcroft is encouraging you to go to the polls today.

“If you’re registered, you can vote. Go to your polling place if you haven’t already voted and you will be able to vote. Your votes will count,” Ashcroft says.

You’ll need to bring one form of identification with you to the polls. That can include your voter ID card, your driver’s license, a bank statement or a paycheck.

“I would just encourage everyone out there that doesn’t like politicians, that doesn’t like me, get out and prove me wrong. Let’s have a good turnout, let’s make sure we the people get out in mass and make the decision. It’s sad when only 65 to 70 percent of the people that could show up that are registered don’t,” Secretary Ashcroft tells 939 the Eagle’s “Wake Up Mid-Missouri.”

Polls are open statewide today until 7 pm.
