St. Louis mayoral race

City of St. Louis residents choose a new mayor. They selected Tishaura Jones with 52% of the vote. Cara Spencer received 48% of the vote. It was the first mayoral election under the city’s newly approved voting rules, which allowed residents to vote for as many candidates as they wanted in the March 2 primary. Jones and Spencer — both Democrats — were the top two vote-getters.

Proposition Y

Proposition Y asked voters in St. Louis and St. Louis County how the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) should pay for work that a court order says must be done. Prop Y overwhelming passed Tuesday, with voters deciding the agency should use bonds to keep rates lower and pay the price over time with interest.

Proposition E

St. Louis city voters also made a choice about what to do with the city earnings tax, on the ballot as Prop E. The 1% tax applies to anyone who works or lives in the city, generating about $240 million a year or 36% of the city’s annual budget. Prop E passed with 79% of the vote, meaning the tax will remain for the next five years.
