On Nov. 7, 2000, Missourians elected incumbent Democratic Gov. Mel Carnahan, who had died in a plane crash three weeks earlier. He defeated his Republican rival, John Ashcroft, for a U.S. Senate seat.

Some cried foul. The St. Louis circuit attorney called in the FBI to investigate allegations of voter fraud.

A big change arrives at the St. Louis circuit court today - the start of mandatory e-filing.

As of today, clerks will no longer accept paper filings for almost all court cases. There are exceptions for individuals who file a case without the help of an attorney. Court employees are also digitizing old cases for electronic storage.
