St. Louis City absentee ballots accepted starting Saturday for April 6 election


ST. LOUIS – St. Louis City voters can begin casting their ballots early in the April 6 general election Saturday, April 3.

The Board of Election Commissioners Office will be open for voters to do so in downtown St. Louis from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

These are extended hours added on by the board. The deadline to mail in an absentee ballot was March 24, but voters could still be able to make their vote count with an absentee ballot valid until April 5 at 5:00 p.m.

The general election is April 6 and this one will be different with the passage of Proposition D. There will be no party affiliations on the ballot, and in this election, voters can only vote for one candidate except for those running for the Board of Education.

There is a proposition on the ballot to extend the city’s earnings tax for five more years. There are also five Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District charter amendment propositions.

Those casting their ballot on April 6 are asked to bring their notice of election card.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
