KBIA's Live 2020 Election Coverage

Nathan Lawrence

KBIA will be maintaining this post as a place to update you with the latest news on the 2020 local, state and national elections. 

As Missourians head to the polls on Tuesday, hundreds of thousands have already voted with absentee and mail-in ballots. KBIA will have more than a dozen reporters covering races across mid-Missouri all day and into the evening. Even before election results start coming in, you can follow our coverage on our official Twitter account and on our live blog, which you can find below.
