Amendment No. 5, which deals with the right to bear arms, passed due to statewide votes. Amendment No. 9, which protects citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures in relation to electronic communications, also passed statewide with 74 percent voting in approval.
In the St. Charles county executive race, the Democratic primary saw Rod Zerr win unopposed. In the Republican county executive primary, Steve Ehlmann beat out Douglass Funderburk with 78 percent of the votes. Funderburk effectively withdrew from the race on July 15, citing personal reasons.
