$400 million Mega Millions drawing tonight

Tuesday, 18 March 2014 13:47 Published in Local News
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An estimated $400 million is up for grabs in the latest Mega Millions jackpot.
 
Tuesday night's potential jackpot would be the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.
 
If a single player matches all six numbers, the winner would have the option of taking a $224 million lump-sum prize.
 
Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase jackpots by lowering the odds of winning the top prize.
 
If no one hits on all six numbers, the jackpot rolls over to Friday's drawing and a grand prize that would start marching toward $500 million.
 
Mega Millions is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
 

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - A question for registered voters in Illinois, have you voted today? If you answered no, you are in what appears to be an overwhelming majority.

 

Keith Dudding is an election judge in Madison County and says this year's attendance could be one for the books. Dudding says at his location, on two of 300 registered voters had cast a ballot in the first two-and-a-half hours of voting.

 

KTRS has discovered the same experience at other polling places. Our reporter visited three separate polling places and officials at all locations gave a similar story--turnout is historically low.

 

There is still time to get to the ballot--polls close at 7 PM. 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The mid-February kidnapping death of a 10-year-old Springfield girl has led to calls to changes Missouri's Amber Alert system.
 
Fourth-grader Hailey Owens was walking just a block from her home when she was abducted.  Springfield police responded within 10 minutes of the initial 911 call. But the statewide child abduction alert didn't go out for more than two hours.
   
The Kansas City Star reports that a grassroots campaign in southwest Missouri is working to speed up an alert system that requires three-page forms be filled out by hand and then sent by fax.
 
Middle school football coach Craig Michael Wood has been charged in the girl's death after police reported finding her body in Wood's basement.
