KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One Kansas City metro group is helping Missouri voters who have questions about absentee and mail-in ballots.

Volunteers with Voters Helping Voters were at several KCMO community centers Saturday to provide free notary services and answer questions from voters.

Malia Hatley, with Voters Helping Voters, said the events are about ensuring constituents are informed about their voting options.

"There were a lot of steps and obstacles being thrown in the path of Missouri voters this year between the notarization, the general confusion, a lot of different roadblocks to voting,” Hatley said. “So we felt like we needed to do something about it."

The group will have volunteers at the following locations on Sunday:

  • 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Price Chopper, 9550 Blue Ridge Blvd.
  • 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Brooklyn Market, 2119 Independence Blvd.
  • 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Good Shop, 2604 E 27th Street
  • 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Food Mart, 5901 Troost Ave.
