November 3 Election Ballot Information

There is a lot of info out there about how ballots will work for the General Election.
We asked the KC Board of Election Commissioners for specifics and this is what they provided:
Voters can vote absentee at the KCEB office starting 9/22 and ending 11/2. KCEB will have 3 additional absentee satellites located throughout the City starting 10/13 where voters can vote absentee only.

Download Absentee and Mail-In Ballot Request HERE.

FYI: Voters who request mail-in ballots MUST mail the ballots via USPS and be received by KCEB office no later than 7:00 pm on November 3, 2020. They can NOT drop them off at the polls. Absentee ballots can be surrendered at the polls.

Last day to register to vote is 10/7. Register to vote

Take Your Business Outside!

There’s never been a more important time to think creatively about how your business can welcome customers. Whether you own a restaurant, a coffee shop, a retail store, or anything that welcomes people indoors, we all know that this time is beyond challenging. The good news is it’s possible to use our outdoor spaces to invite and serve customers safely.

Midtown KC Now has worked with CityFi and Street Smarts Design + Build to create a helpful, FREE GUIDE on how to take advantage of the space outside your door. Please see link below for the City's Permitting process.
