Sunday, August 12, 2012 | 8:31 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Images from a Boone County election watch party, Missouri football training day and preseason football scrimmage were some of the best photos taken by Missourian staff in the past week.

In this photo taken Tuesday by Robert Swain, Steven Vroman shows off his "going out hat" during Northern District commissioner candidate Janet Thompson's watch party at Broadway Brewery. Thompson and her Republican opponent Don Bormann will vie for Skip Elkin's Northern District seat in November.

Missouri football tailback Marcus Murphy catches the ball during a Tuesday training session at the Missouri Athletic Training Complex in this photo by Tatiana Fernandez. Murphy, a sophomore from Dallas, missed all of last season because of a shoulder injury.

In this photo taken by Roxana Pop, Stream Team volunteers clean up trash on an East Campus street Saturday. The team of about 15 included college students and neighborhood residents.

In Pinar Istek's photo, Missouri quarterback James Franklin attends Missouri's first preseason scrimmage Saturday. Franklin threw for 228 yards during the scrimmage at Memorial Stadium, but defensive pressure caused many of his passes to go for short yardage.

In this photo by Tatiana Fernandez, a Columbia family visits the polls at the Columbia Public Library on Tuesday to vote in the Missouri primary election.
