The June 2 election will feature a proposed tax increase for the Kansas City Fire Department as well as address some school district issues. In some areas outside the city, there are also city council races. But when you head in to vote, things will look different than usual.
“They will see markers on the ground that ensures they’re six feet apart that we’ve measured out for the poll workers. They will see barrier protectors at every poll,” Lauri Ealom, director with the Kansas City Board of Election Commissioners, said.
To help with social distancing, Kansas City will also have only 28 polling places. They’re located at larger spaces, like community centers and schools, so that voting stations can be spread apart. Having fewer sites also helps ensure there are enough election judges to go around.
“Just be prepared. Kansas City Election Board has gone above and beyond in preparation for safety, not only of poll workers, but also voters. And your vote does count, but so does your safety,” Ealom said.
