Kansas City Top 5 Polling Place Complaints



Quick list of more than a few things wrong with Kansas City voting today . . .

- It's really not that crowded . . . It's just that Election Board employees are poorly trained, snow and far too happy to be out of the house today.

- Electioneering laws are not enforced anywhere in Kansas City. Making it to the ballot is a minefield of polite sales pitches.

- WHY CAN'T THERE BE MORE THAN ONE ELECTRONIC BALLOT AT EACH KANSAS CITY POLLING LOCATIONS?!?!?

- Scribbling on a tablet really isn't a signature and those things are filthy.

- Privacy isn't a concern for local election boards . . . Address, signature and all kinds of info is just blurted in public and we're lucky that ID thieves don't care about Democracy.


More complaints in a bit . . .

Agree with all of these complaints. Right on the money. Electioneering needs to be enforced. No reason to have a rule if it can be broken without recourse.

Yes and you can never be sure whether that woman you signed right before you had been rubbing herself just before entering the poll. As so many of them are want to do.

We pay those folks in the election board offices 365 days a year to plan and prepare and this is the shit you get. Of anything will keep you from voting it ain't voter ID. It is mile ling lines that no bureaucrat can justify

Your tax dollars at work!!!!

The employees at my polling place were totally unprepared when the polls opened at 6. They were still showing each other how to do things ten minutes later. Banks of ceiling lights above the paper ballot tables were off, so people voting by paper marked their ballots in the dusk. Room layout forced lots of voters to cross through lines, and the poll tables were placed so that a long line had to start outside rather than in.

These are some reasons why I keep voting for candidates who say they want to make the government smaller. Without success of course.

Bob nailed it. They need better training because they're not equipped to deal with a line deeper than 3.

My voting place in Westport was perfectly run. Everything worked, people got in and out reasonably. Virtually all was civil. There were rightfully proper watchers. All was good. Professionally done people.
