Eligibility (75.1% eligible to vote)
Missouri gained statehood in August 1821. A Midwestern state bordering the south, Missouri has, until recently, been a true battleground state with amazing historical accuracy at voting for the ultimate election winner. From 1904 through 2004, Missourians got it wrong just once – preferring Adlai Stevenson over Dwight Eisenhower in 1956. In 2008, the streak ended when Barack Obama lost to John McCain by the slenderest of margins, 49.4% to 49.3%, or about 3,900 votes out of 2.93 million cast. Obama lost here again in 2012, this time by 9.5%. An even bigger margin was achieved by Donald Trump in 2016, he won by nearly 19% over Hillary Clinton.

Missouri has 10 Electoral College votes to cast in Presidential elections.
