Below is  exciting news. I received a call today on the Kansas City Chapter
line that  our April 4 local election will be using new voting equipment
allowing  accessible voting in this and all future elections in Platte
County. We  have been asked to assist in getting the word out to voters in
Platte  County. Below is an announcement about an open house on March 22
which will  allow voters to get familiar with the equipment. If anyone is
interested in  participating in this opportunity to see the machines before
the April 4  elections, please let me know.

Platte City, Missouri, March 15, 2017

The Platte County  Board of Elections will introduce upgraded voting
equipment at the April 4,  2017 General Municipal election. While most 
may not notice the small  differences in casting a ballot the new system
offers several levels of  improved user interface, improved auditability, 
more straightforward  service compared to the old equipment which was
purchased in the 1990's and  early 2000's.

"We really hope this move will make everyone's  election-day run more
smoothly" said Wendy Flanigan, Republican  Director.

"One of the most exciting features of the new system is that  we can now
offer independent voting for visually impaired voter at all  elections 
than only Federal and State Elections" added Chris  Hershey, Democratic

The Election Board will host an open  house to showcase the new equipment at
2600 NW Prairie View Road in Platte  City on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 from
2:00 to 4:00 p.m..

The Platte  County Board of Elections administers Federal, State and local
elections as  well as voter registration. The office at 2600 NW Prairie View
Road, Platte  City, MO 64079 is open Monday through Friday 8:00 to  5:00
