Slay Says City is Ready for Election Day

St. Louis, MO – St. Louis Mayor Slay says the city is planning a hassle-free election for city voters Tuesday.

He and other city leaders say they've covered every conceivable detail; from automated wake-up calls for election judges to having lists of people with keys to polling places incase doors are locked.

The city is hoping to avoid a repeat of Election Day two years ago, when some voters were turned away in confusion that led to a Justice Department lawsuit.
