Kansas City election live updates


The UNews Kansas City exit poll results show former Vice President Joe Biden leading President Donald Trump by over 50 percentage points. The results are based on a questionnaire taken by voters at various polling locations in the Kansas City area.

n=79; margin of error=9%; confidence level=90%

12:15 a.m. In the 5th Congressional District, which includes Jackson County and UMKC, incumbent Emmanuel Cleaver II (D) won the House seat with 59% of votes. Sam Graves (R) won the 6th Congressional District – which includes nearly all of northland Kansas City – with 67% of votes.

7:32 p.m. With 37% of votes counted for the 5th Congressional District, Democratic incumbent Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II leads Republican candidate Ryan Derks 61% to 37%, according to NPR.

6:40 p.m. Multiple businesses on the Plaza have boarded up their windows in preparation for possible protests following the election.

4:57 p.m. Coronavirus-positive voters at Union Station are waiting hours to cast their ballots in curbside voting.

“We’ve just been overwhelmed with so many COVID voters,” Sally Miller, a Kansas City Election Board commissioner, told reporters at the Beacon.

4:34 p.m. Kansas City’s WWI Memorial was defaced this morning with anti-voting messages.

“We are proud to be a polling location & condemn this attempt at voter intimidation. Our democracy is something that generations of veterans, including those in WWI, have fought to defend,” the museum wrote in a statement on Twitter in response to the vandalism.

Editor’s Note: All polling results derived from reporting by NPR and The Associated Press.
