Republican Congressman Roy Blunt officially has been elected to the U.S. Senate, defeating Democratic Secretary of State Robin Carnahan.
State election officials on Tuesday certified the results from the Nov. 2 election. Blunt received 1.1 million votes compared to Carnahan's 790,000. More than 1.9 million ballots were cast in the race.
The other top vote-getter was a narrowly approved ballot measure that adds new restrictions for dog breeders. It was approved with 51.6 percent of the vote.
State election officials say 46.9 percent of registered voters cast a ballot during the election.
Candidates who lost by less than 1 percentage point can request a re-count within one week. Elections officials have 20 days from that request to count the votes again and certify the results.
