The window for applying to vote in the UMKC/Midtown streetcar mail-in election has been extended three weeks, due to the number of active voters expected to participate in the process.

Registered voters who reside inside the Transportation Development District boundary may apply for a ballot as early as 8 a.m. on Wednesday, April 5, 2017. The deadline to apply for a ballot is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

Per state statute, voters must provide proof of voter registration that indicates they reside inside the proposed TDD boundary.

The new TDD — which would eventually replace the downtown streetcar TDD — is approximately bound by the Missouri River on the north, Campbell Street on the east, State Line on the west, and 53rd Street on the south. The southern boundary mostly follows city streets, so please check this map to confirm your location.
