The Votes Are In: June 2 election results

The ongoing state of the COVID-19 pandemic spurred many St. Louis County residents to file absentee ballots in order to participate in the June 2 municipal election [originally scheduled for April 7]. The result was lighter levels of physical attendance across the county.

According to Rick Stream, Republican director of elections for St. Louis County, the regular turnout for a municipal election is 10% to 25% countywide.

For the June 2 election, Stream said the turnout was a little over 15%, with nearly half of that amount coming from absentee ballots. Normally, absentee ballots would account for 10% of the turnout.

“That was, in itself, unusual because we had so many absentee voters,” Stream said. “But the total [turnout] ended up being the same as what we usually get countywide.”

Those who did opt to visit polling places in person found that social distancing measures like contactless procedures and the use of masks were enforced. Some individuals had to visit a different polling place altogether.

Amidst the myriad of changes, many propositions were passed with majority votes from citizens.

Some incumbents returned to their seats while other municipalities will see new faces in the future. The following is a list of unofficial election results. Write-in candidates and uncontested races are not included. Incumbents are noted with an *.
