The 87th Legislative District “redo” primary via the Missouri Secretary of State:

September 24, 2012 Special Primary Election

State Representative – District 87 – 16 of 16 Precincts Reported

Susan Carlson Democrat 1,766 48.7%

Stacey Newman Democrat 1,861 51.3%

Total Votes: 3,627

No republicans (or any other party’s candidate, for that matter) filed, so this election was for all the marbles.

The “redo” was due to incorrect ballots given to voters which exceeded the margin (1 vote) in the original primary.

Interestingly, the turnout for the “redo” was close to the turnout for the original primary, with just 18 fewer votes.
