KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas stopped by the FOX4 studio on Tuesday and said something unusual happened when he tried to vote earlier in the morning.

Missouri holds its presidential preference primary Tuesday, and the state accepts a number of different IDs to vote. Mayor Lucas said he showed his utility bill, which a poll worker accepted, but somehow he wasn’t in the system and couldn’t cast his ballot.

He said he’d been voting at the same location for 11 years and has already been in touch with the director of the Kansas City Election Board about his experience.

The mayor also talked with Mark Alford and Abby Eden about the recent violence in Westport and how his office will address repeat issues within the entertainment district, and developments with the coronavirus and how the city is preparing for what he’s calling a public health crisis.
