JEFFERSON CITY, Missouri — Secretary of State Jason Kander says about 35.23 percent of eligible Missouri voters participated in this year's elections.

That's slightly lower than the 40 percent Kander's office predicted before Tuesday's election.

Kander's office announced Wednesday that unofficial results showed slightly more than 1.4 million of Missouri's 4 million registered voters went to the polls.

The three counties with the highest turnout were Knox County, with 52.11 percent; Schuyler, 50.82 percent; and Worth, 50.30 percent.

Kander says the proposed constitutional amendment concerning teacher tenure and evaluations drew the most voter participation. Voters rejected the amendment.

State law requires results to be certified by Dec. 9.
