Readers I heard from today thought the story was important, but they also pointed out one glaring omission.
“I know I can go to other places to get voting information but why should that be necessary, especially on important votes?” emailed one reader. “I like having all the information in one place in my morning paper.”
Editors usually do try to get the local contingent’s votes into these stories, as readers consistently tell me they consider it vital. Political reporter Dave Helling has donea blog post over on “The Buzz” blog that lists how Missouri’s and Kansas’ representatives voted.
