About the Initiative Petition
We need 7,000 SIGNATURES by NOV 15, 2021 to bring ranked choice voting to Kansas City! This initiative petition will give voters more voice and more choice with a fairer election system, while cutting the cost of extra runoff elections at the same time!
See the sample petition below for a sample signature sheet, the financial impact statement, and the full Charter amendment.
Getting Involved in KC
KC has plenty of events happening all the time, and these are great opportunities to gather signatures. Alternatively, collecting at your local grocery store (with their permission) or canvassing door-to-door can also be effective. Let us know what event you want to go to on this form.
Please join our Facebook group to communicate about how petitioning is going, any events you think of, or just to stay connected!
PICKUP / DROP OFF LOCATIONS
To pick up new petition sheets or drop off completed petition sheets, reach out to the following people:
NEAR LIBERTY - Larry Bradley
8921 N Glenwood Ave
MIDTOWN - Rachel MacNair (notary)
811 Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd
Each petition sheet must be notarized after (and only after) signatures have been collected on it. Notaries can typically be found at your bank, insurance office, or libraries. We also have several notaries on our team, including Rachel, who can notarize if you schedule an appointment (see contact above) to drop off at her house. For details about notarizing, check the Instructions document in the Petitioning Toolkit.
