It's down to the wire and now the after work voter wave is the last chance for politicos to make their pitch.
To wit and before it's too late . . .
PLEASE SHARE PREDICTIONS, INSIGHTS AND OPINIONS FOR TONIGHT'S EPIC KANSAS CITY ELECTION BATTLE ROYALE!!!
A quick run down of what we're hearing . . .
- Insiders are saying it will be close. They claim the margin of victory will be less than double digits no matter who proves victorious. But Quinton supporters seem confident going in . . .
- 4th District might qualify for a recount already.
- Best tidbit of the day: Some campaign workers were chided for smoking weed before handing out info.
- Turnout has been decent throughout the day. The weather has held up and we're seeing more voters across Midtown and into the urban core. Northland voting numbers are falling behind BUT better than last time around as well.
- Freebies abound. For locals out on the town tonight, bring "I Voted" Stickers.
- Clay was right there was no place for a write-in vote on the paper ballot. This election rule might not be constitutional and certainly deserves further scrutiny.
- Tonight's Quinton Lucas watch party will be at the Wonder Shops and Flats on the East Side whereas the Jolie Justus for Mayor campaign will host an election night watch party at the Mulberry Room for friends and supporters. The days of Mayor Sly's watch parties at The Chamber HQ at Union Station are now a thing of the past.
Polls Close at 7:00 p.m.
One last thing . . .
Let's not forget that MOST KANSAS CITY VOTERS WERE UNDECIDED right up until they were given their ballots.
And so, here's just a bit more info for last minute election denizens . . .
