WASHINGTON – Election Day 2020 has finally arrived. As is tradition, the first Election Day ballots were cast just after midnight in the New Hampshire town of Dixville Notch. Over 97 million Americans voted prior to today. That’s a record for early voting… and it’s almost two-thirds of the total number of ballots cast in 2016.

PITTSBURG, Kan. – If you’re planning on casting your vote today, poll hours vary from state to state. In Missouri the polls are open from 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. As long as you’re in line by 7:00 p.m. you can still vote. For Kansas and Oklahoma polling places will be open from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. In Arkansas you can vote from 7:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.

JOPLIN, Mo. – Some Jasper County voters ran into long lines on the last day of early voting. The doors closed at 5:00 p.m. During the day, people were voting at both the Jasper County Courthouse in Carthage and at the Joplin location. Due to a trial taking place on the same floor as voting in Joplin, some people had to wait for up to an hour to get in and vote, as space was limited to nearly standing room only.

JOPLIN, Mo. – Three former nursing instructors have filed a lawsuit against Missouri Southern’s board of governors, alleging whistle blower retaliation and breach of contract. MSSU’s nursing program came under scrutiny back in may after the state board received an anonymous tip about violations of state regulations. Professors Sara Staples, Peyton Kessler and Coeta Ogle reported problems during a faculty accreditation meeting in March, bringing up concerns about being understaffed and overworked. They and another person suspected of providing the tip to the state board were fired.
