JOPLIN, Mo. – Even though a lot of people have voted absentee, the majority of  voters in our area are showing up in person and there’s a lot of them.

Throughout the day at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, the line literally wrapped around the building with the wait time ranging from 45 minutes to an hour and 45 minutes.

One poll worker said about 150 people were waiting at 6 a.m.

Around 6:30 p.m., nearly 1,500 votes had been cast.

Voters say it’s worth the wait.

“With the pandemic, with the economy, I have two businesses here in town so it’s really important for me to get somebody that’s gonna get businesses back and get customers back, but do it safely,” said Jeremy Ward, one Joplin voter.

3500 people belong to the 15th precinct in Joplin.
