St. Louis, MO – Tuesday's local elections in Missouri include a race for two seats on the St. Louis School Board. None of the candidates on the ballot has ever held elective office.

And many people are wondering if the election even matters, given the state's recent vote to take over the district in June 15th.

But others do feel the election is important, and say the board still has a lot to do before the takeover.
