St. Peters 2012 General Election Headquarters

Get the results from the races around St. Charles County, Missouri and the United States of America.

Welcome to your home for coverage of the 2012 General Election news for St. Peters.

Patch will be visiting area polling places, talking to voters and checking to see if there's anything amiss at the polls. 

But the most important part of this story is you. All day on Nov. 6, we want to know: What were lines like at your polling place? What number were you in line? What kind of activity was there outside? What was important in determining your vote? Does your family have a fun election day ritual, or a unique story of a first-time or long-time voter? Let me know: StPeters@patch.com

In the evening, we'll be at various campaign watch parties as the results come in and the reaction flows in. Up-to-the-minute numbers will automatically be updated in the chart above. Check back with St. Peters for constant updates as they become available.

You'll have plenty of opportunities to comment on Patch stories. You can load your election day photo in our Pics & Clips Gallery. Tweet us a photo or thoughts @StPetersPatch or talk to us on Facebook/StPetersPatch

What do you need to vote?

Registered voters need to present one type of identification from this list:

  • ID issued by the federal government, state of Missouri or a local election authority. This could include a drivers' license or passport.
  • ID issued by a Missouri public or private institution of higher education, including a university, college, vocational or technical school.
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or other government document that contains the name and address of the voter.
  • Driver's license or state identification card issued by another state.

Even if you do not have one of these types of identification, you may still cast a ballot if two supervising election judges—one from each major political party—attest they know you.

What's the weather going to be like?

On Election Day, a 30 percent chance of showers. The National Weather Service predicts it will be cloudy, with a high near 50 with light and variable wind becoming southwest 8 to 13 mph in the morning.

Mark Parkinson lost my vote this time because for ALMOST A YEAR his "inbox" has been full and his voicemail is to full to accept messages. If he's too busy to listen, then he can't represent his people. He doesn't know what we want if he won't listen to us. This was the same guy that went house to house and promised to listen, but when he got elected, he quit listening.
