The following is a summary of the 2008 United States presidential election in Missouri, the last state in the country still to be decided. Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan announced on Thursday November 6 that a record 2.9 million Missourians, or 69% of eligible voters, cast their ballots in Tuesdays general election, about 200,000 more than the previous record in the 2004 election.
On Monday November 10, Republican candidate Senator John McCain led president-elect Barack Obama by 4968 votes, approximately 0.1% of the total popular vote in Missouri. If McCain's lead holds, it will be only the second time since 1904 that Missouri has failed to be a bellwether state. Lincoln County, Missouri, the only bellwether county in a bellwether state, favored McCain by 2690 votes.
