KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Missouri voters will get their say on Tuesday as to who they want to be the next President of the United States.

The Presidential Primary begins at 6 a.m., and election officials across Missouri are expecting a higher than average turnout.

There is still no clear winner on the Republican or the Democratic side – so the delegates up for grabs in Missouri still matter.

Missouri is one of five states hosting a primary Tuesday. The Show-Me-State, though, is offering fewer delegates than other primary states of Ohio, Florida, North Carolina and Illinois. But it is an open primary in Missouri, which means no matter how you are registered - whether as a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent, you can vote on any ballot. But you have to choose one ballot only.

For example, if you’re a Democrat, you can vote in the Republican presidential primary Tuesday in Missouri– and vice versa.

"I know a lot of people don't think the primaries are as important, but I think it's going to make or break the ticket this year," Kansas City voter Stephanie Eaton said.

Make sure you bring your ID with you as you must be a registered voter to cast a ballot. Polling locations are open from 6 a.m.,  until 7 p.m.

As for where to vote, in Kansas City, go to your usual polling location, or you can always visit your local County Clerk’s website to find out exactly where you need to go.

"It's very important this year, maybe more than ever for us to vote because of all the issues involved and the need to get the right candidate in there," Kansas City voter Linda Singer said.
