THE LONG WAIT
Editor and VIdeographer
Thousands of Missourians waited in line to fulfill their civic duty and make their voices heard on Tuesday. Due to the pandemic, Missourians faced an election unlike any other with increased safety measures, additional polling locations and longer lines. Despite the pandemic, the Missouri Secretary of State’s office predicted a voter turnout of 3.2 million. By sundown, Missouri incumbents held steady in spite of the “Blue Wave” in Columbia.
Making Of: The Long Wait
The Long Wait was a collaborative video which chronicled the city of Columbia, Missouri. I was helped by a host of fellow videographers who helped cover the city, and the sky! This video was made in addition to our newsrooms local election coverage and was turned around in 24 hours.
