KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs released Election Day details Wednesday after announcing in September that Arrowhead Stadium would be transformed into a polling place on Nov. 3.

Chiefs President Mark Donovan said the process “has been an incredible learning experience” for the Chiefs, but they “look forward to welcoming voters to Arrowhead Stadium to engage in this important civic duty.”

“One of the things that our players have been very passionate about for the past few months has been voter education. We have focused our collective efforts on making sure our players, coaches, staff and Chiefs Kingdom are informed and engaged when it comes to their right to vote,” Donovan said.

On Election Day, voters with Kansas City, Missouri, addresses located in Jackson County can go to Arrowhead Stadium to cast their ballot.

KCMO residents from other counties, such as Clay or Platte counties, will not be able to vote at Arrowhead.

The polling place will open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Anyone in line at 7 p.m. will be able to vote.

Voting will take place on the CommunityAmerica Club Level.

Voters are asked to park in Lot M between Arrowhead and Kauffman Stadium and use the Founder’s Plaza entrance.

For voters without a way to get to Arrowhead, the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) is providing free bus rides from its 12th and Charlotte stop throughout the day.

Voters should bring an acceptable form of identification for voting in Missouri to Arrowhead on Election Day. Those include:

  • Missouri driver or non-driver license
  • U.S. passport
  • U.S. military ID
  • Voter ID card
  • A recent bank statement, utility bill, government check, paycheck, or other government document showing their name and address

All residents who vote at Arrowhead will get a Chiefs-branded “I Voted” sticker.

The Chiefs said COVID-19 safety precautions will be in place, including requiring face coverings at all times and social distancing.

The polling location is funded by donations from the Chiefs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ 15 and the Mahomies Foundation.
