RESULTS: Heartland municipal elections

Voters turn out for April 2 municipal elections

(KFVS) - Some Heartland residents will head to the polls on Tuesday, April 2 for municipal elections.

Polls closed at 7 p.m. CLICK HERE for election results.

Some of the issues we’ve been following include a city use tax in Jackson, Mo. and Proposition Y in Cape Girardeau.

The city use tax in Jackson, Mo. failed to pass on April 2. In the city of Jackson, you are not charged a sales tax if you buy something online from outside the state. The use tax on the April ballot would have changed that.

Voters on Tuesday approved Proposition Y in Cape Girardeau. Proposition Y is a $12 million bond issue for Cape Public Schools that includes an aquatic facility and plans to renovate and expand Alma Schrader and Jefferson Elementary Schools, along with adding an early childhood center.

Mike Henry was voted in as mayor of Carbondale, IL and Mike Absher was voted in as mayor of Marion, IL.

County election officials set up polling places on Monday.

Polls opened in Missouri and Illinois at 6 a.m. on Tuesday.
