KANSAS CITY HOPES TO AVOID PRIMARY ELECTION HOT MESS AMID MAIL-IN VOTE PROBLEMS & POLLING PLACE DISPUTES!!!
Already it look like today's vote will be far more "complicated" than Kansas City officials expect.
Two reasons for local "concern" among the electorate . . .
- A great many Kansas City primary mail-in ballots have FAILED to arrive and locals might be forced to chance it at the polls.
- Coronavirus precautions are untested with big crowds and this vote should garner more participation, longer lines and a great many risky situations that will elicit complaints.
Expect annoying in-person mask debates from people who want to make a spectacle of themselves and point out contradictions betwixt state vs. local mandates.
All things considered . . . Today should be a great preview of the upcoming November disaster.
