Missouri's 2022 election: What you need to know

kansas_city_today_pod_cover.jpg

With the 2022 midterm elections about five weeks away, we're taking a deep dive into what’s on the Missouri ballot — including some significant ballot issues and an open U.S. Senate race.

Much attention is being focused on the elections on the Kansas side of the state line, where races for governor, attorney general and the congressional seat that covers Johnson County and part of Wyandotte County are all too close to call.

The Missouri ballot may seem boring in comparison, but it too features significant races, controversial ballot questions and a newly redistricted Legislature. KCUR's Brian Ellison talks with Jason Hancock of the Missouri Independent.
