Some inquiring minds among Patch readers want to know exactly where U.S. Republican Senator candidate Todd Akin cast his vote after he edged out two others for the Republican slot.
Given the interest in primary elections Tuesday evening, some Patch readers already are asking a historically notable question: Where did U.S. Senate candidate and Wildwood resident Todd Akin physically vote? [See reader comment in linked article] The inquiry about Akin's voting poll location comes due to questions raised during March 2011 about his official residency—which reportedly was Wildwood since 2009—compared to a second home located in Town & Country where voting records indicated he had been voting. (Sign up here for the FREE Patch Newsletter, including Breaking News Alerts.)

Allen, a physical therapist and Iowa native, was first elected in November 2008 in District 92, and re-elected in 2010.

As of Wednesday morning, August 8, all 31 precincts were tallied. Election results are considered unofficial until the Missouri Secretary of States deems them …

Missouri politicians answer voter questions about the Feb. 7 "non-binding" primary and the March caucus. Missouri voters have not used a caucus since 1996 to select their presidential nominee.
State Representative Rick Stream (R-Kirkwood) held an informational meeting Saturday night at Town and Country's Westminster Christian Academy to explain the upcoming Missouri primary and following Republican caucus. He said there is much confusion about Missouri’s Feb. 7 primary, which has been called a “beauty contest” to find the Republican presidential candidate. The election, unlike previous years, is not binding—instead a caucus will determine how Missouri’s 52 GOP delegates will vote at the Republican national convention this year. (Tell Patch if you're voting Tuesday in the poll at the end of this article.) Missouri Democrats do not need to hold a caucus, as their candidate is President Barack Obama, who running for re-election. …

Amid questions about whether the primary will amount to anything, supporters of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney threw his name into contest.
Candidate filing began last week for the state’s presidential primary amid questions about whether the contest will have any bearing on choosing presidential delegates. Four Republican presidential aspirants have signed up for next February’s contest. That list includes former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Georgia businessman Herman Cain, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson and St. Louis resident Michael Meheen. Republicans opted to select their delegates through a caucus process after the legislature failed to pass legislation moving the primary from February to March. Such a move was necessary to avoid running afoul of party rules. Secretary of State Robin Carnahan has been a strong supporter of keeping the primary going, adding that …
