RESOLUTION NO. 970401

 

Urging the Missouri General Assembly to adopt Senate Bill No. 199 which authorizes a pilot program to provide notices of elections to registered voters by mail in order to increase voter participation and directing the City Clerk to provide copies to various members of the General Assembly.

 

WHEREAS, the Missouri General Assembly is now considering Senate Bill No. 199 which would authorize the Secretary of State to establish and implement a pilot program within four test areas of the state to give notices of elections by mail to registered voters within those areas, such notices to include the date and time of the election, the location of the voter's polling place and a sample ballot containing all the issues and candidates to be voted upon; and

 

WHEREAS, because the purpose of this proposed pilot program is to increase voter participation in the election process, the Bill also authorizes the Secretary of State to survey voters within the test areas to evaluate the effectiveness of the mailed notices; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby urge the members of the Missouri General Assembly to act favorably to adopt Senate Bill No. 199 which authorizes a pilot program to provide notices of elections to registered voters by mail in order to increase voter participation; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof, and that the City Clerk be directed to provide copies hereof to the members of the General Assembly from the Kansas City Metropolitan Area and to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President Pro Tem of the Senate and the Governor as evidence of the support of the Mayor and Council for this Bill.
