Nominating petitions for 2011 election available in City Clerk’s Office

Due to a high volume of inquiries, the City of Kansas City, Mo. City Clerk’s Office is making available nominating petitions for those interested in running in the 2011 Mayor and City Council Election. Usually not available until August 31, the petitions are available for pick-up in person in the City Clerk’s Office, 25th floor of City Hall, 414 E. 12th Street. Petitions will soon be available online at There is no limitation on the number of petitions a registered voter may sign. It is no longer necessary for the circulator to print the name of each signer at the bottom of each petition. Candidate qualifications and information are available online at

Candidates filing for in-district offices will be advised that early completion of nominating petitions may be complicated by the City’s ongoing redistricting process. Those petitions contain a notice that reads, “Candidates who begin collecting signatures at this time are running the risk of not getting the correct signatures due to the redistricting of Councilmanic Districts.” Candidates filing for at-large council offices and mayoral candidates are unaffected by council redistricting.

Media inquiries and other requests for more information about nominating petitions should be directed to Vickie Thompson, City Clerk, at 816-513-3360.
