Knox County voter

A voter casts his ballot at the Fredericktown Board of Education building on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020.

CORRECTION: A previous edition of this story stated the Fredericktown Community Joint Fire District's levy would go toward "fire and EMS services." This was incorrect. It will go toward "fire protection services." The story has been updated with the correct information included. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

This story will be updated continuously throughout the night. It will contain the latest results from local, state and federal races. Here is how Knox County voted, according to the Knox County Board of Elections:
