Long lines were already reported before polls opened for midterm elections in Missouri at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

For people in Jackson County, wait times were expected to be especially long, because of a 19-inch long, front and back, complicated ballot.

"We're suggesting to people that if they come any time between 10:00 and noon and 1:00 to 4:00, they'll get in and out quicker," said Shawn Kieffer, a Kansas City election director. "We're hoping, at least."

Polls remain open until 7:00 p.m. in Kansas and Missouri.
