Will the director again be on vacation during the Aug 5 election?

Funny no one else can take vacation time during an election but Shirley can.

Is that legal? There are other parties. There are people who affliate with no party.

This makes them ineligible to help run elections?

There is no constitutional provision for what pols like to call a "two-party system." None whatsoever. We have a tradition of two dominant parties, but that does not make it a "system."

Democrats and Republicans have no more rights to anything than anyone else. If that's not the case, then this is just another example of an American city being run like some Third World shit hole in Asia, Latin America or Africa.

This is a great opportunity for some smart independent or member of a minor party to file suit against the Kansas City Elections Board. I would do it myself if I lived in Killer City. Hey, CK folks who aren't Dems or GOPs: Your government's incompetence means that you have an opportunity to collect BIG BUCKS, courtesy of the other taxpayers. Sue 'em! They will settle and you will make a ton of money.
