      Primary Election: Missouri voters seize the day

      It's primary night in Missouri.

      There are a number of important issues facing Missouri voters including prayer in school, a Republican senate primary as well as a proposed library tax in Palmyra.

      Voter turnout was expected to hit 25 percent.

      In Marion County, voters will decide the fate of the Bicentennial Library.

      The library is running a deficit of $2,000 to $3,000 per month and can only remain in operation another 18 to 20 months with funds on hand. Voters are being asked to approve a 15 cent property tax per $100 assessed valuation that will cover the library's financial needs and allow for technological and other upgrades.

      Polls closed at 7 p.m., so click here to get up-to-the-minute election results.
