Rain hampers early election day voting

The parking lot of the Don Bosco Senior Center looked fairly full, but inside the lobby and voting booths stood mostly empty.

Poll officials had already planned for a low turn out — despite two hot-button issues of smoking and bus taxes — but the rain was not exactly helping get bodies into booths.

Being that it is a spring, municipal election the slow pace has not necessarily stunned many involved in the election.


If you did not get a chance to see light rail advocate Clay Chastain on KCPT's Kansas City Week in Review, its worth a viewing here . At one point Chastain seems to blame KC voters for approving his plan even though it was so, well, flawed.

He, despite his public transportation support, is against the bus tax. His claim is that the city has already wasted too much money on city buses.
