For Immediate Release
League of Women Voters Provides Personalized Ballot Information – Election Aug. 4
July 9, 2020—Kansas City, Mo.—An online voter guide providing personalized ballot information for the August 4 election will be available July 20 at www.vote411.org/ballot.
The online form will ask for the voter’s address and show the races for that specific address. Another benefit is it will show all of the voting districts, from Congressional to local Wards. Since this is a primary, in Missouri, the Vote411 Voter Guide will ask which party.
The information is compiled by League of Women Voters of Kansas City, Jackson, Clay and Platte Counties (LWVKC) volunteers who reach out to candidates and organizations supporting and opposing ballot issues. Both the organizations’ and the candidates’ descriptions are included word-for-word with no editing. If there is no information, it is because the candidate or organization did not respond to emails, letters and phone calls. For the August 4 election, The League of Women Voters of Missouri will provide balanced arguments on Amendment 2, the referendum to expand Medicaid.
Voters are encouraged to review the issues and candidate statements at their convenience. Optional capabilities include marking a personalized ballot, called MyBallot and printing or emailing it to bring to the polls, thus saving time and ensuring the accuracy of an individual’s cast ballot.
In addition to Vote411, the nonpartisan Kansas City League of Women Voters provides a number of services for the community including voter registration activities and candidate and issue forums. The League was founded in 1920 and this year is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
In 2020, the League is expanding its traditional election year activities as a Census 2020 partner. The organization is encouraging the public to complete their census forms, valued at $1700 per person for returning Federal tax dollars that support a range of Missouri safety net programs.
