COLUMBIA — Voters all over the country flocked to the polls Tuesday for midterm congressional elections and other issues. Mid-Missouri voters started as early as 6 a.m. Tuesday morning to vote on the issues that meant the most to them.

The results of the election varied. The Republicans took control of the U.S. House. Missouri voters chose Republican Blaine Luetkemeyer over Christopher Dwyer, with 67.30 percent of the vote for the U.S. House seat in District 9. Republican Roy Blunt took Missouri's Senate race with 49.08 percent over Democrat Robin Carnahan's 44.93 percent.

In Boone County, Republican Ed Robb defeated Democrat J. Scott Christianson for Boone County presiding commissioner by just 528 votes.

In the races for state representative, the winners are Republican John Cauthorn in the 21st District seat, Democrat Stephen Webber in the 23rd District seat and Democrat Chris Kelly in the 24th District seat.

In ballot issues, voters approved the parks sales tax by 64.36 percent of the vote. Columbia residents also struck down the Taser ban by a wide margin, with 77.11 percent.

But perhaps the most closely contested issue was Proposition B. Voters chose to pass the dog breeding regulations bill with 51.5 percent.
