ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – FOX 2 followed more than 600 municipal races in Missouri and Illinois on Tuesday. Early voters were able to cast their ballots before the severe weather moved into the Saint Louis area that morning.

All eyes were on Ferguson where voter turnout could change the racial makeup of the city council as it moves forward after the Michael Brown shooting and civil unrest. Two African-Americans were elected to the three open Ferguson city council seats.

Voters in East St. Louis have a number of issues on the ballot, including mayor.  Mayor Alvin Parks lost to  Emeka Jackson-Hicks.   Parks was running as a write-in candidate because the Illinois supreme court removed his name from the ballot for not gathering enough signatures.
