RESOLUTION NO. 041102

 

Urging the voters of Kansas City to register to vote and to vote in the upcoming November election.

 

WHEREAS, the right to vote is an essential part of the American representative democracy form of government; and

 

WHEREAS, in order to exercise this right, voters must register prior to the election; and

 

WHEREAS, historically, voter registration and voter turnout has unfortunately been too low; and

 

WHEREAS, it is important that City employees and other Kansas Citians register to vote and vote in the upcoming November election, in order that their voices be heard; and

 

WHEREAS, to encourage all those eligible to vote to take advantage of this basic right, it is important that the City assist voter registration efforts without political motive; and

 

WHEREAS, through October 6, 2004, the City will have voter registration booths available at certain City facilities for those of its employees who wish to either register to vote or to update their voter registrations; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby urge all City employees and Kansas Citians to take advantage of the voter registration booths available in certain City facilities and to be sure to exercise their right to vote in the upcoming election.
