Prep Before the Polls with Vote411!

Prep Before the Polls with Vote411!

The general election is fast approaching on November 3, 2020, and for many voters, there will be numerous officials and issues to decide on. To help make the process easier, the League of Women Voters is once again offering their Vote411 forum with personalized ballots, which allows users to plug in their address and see exactly what will be on their ballot on election day.

Vote411 includes candidate information (provided by each of the candidates), as well as arguments for and against ballot initiatives. After reviewing the choices, you can check the box next to your selection and then print or save a copy of your completed ballot to use as a reference when you head to the polls. Doing this work up front will save you time and stress when you head to the polls!

In addition to this bit of advance homework, Missouri voters must also decide how they’d like to vote. Due to the ongoing public health crisis, this year, Missouri voters can vote by mail-in ballot. More information about this process as well as other voting options can be found on the Missouri Secretary of State’s website.

For those who are voting via mail-in ballot, select MCPL branches are offering notary services on election materials up until November 3. Register for an appointment at The League of Women Voters is also offering notary services at Kansas City’s City Market from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through November 1. Visit for more information. Additional notary services for Missouri voters can be found at

Happy Voting!
