A Kansas City Redistricting Charter Amendment measure was on the November 2, 2010 ballot in Kansas City, which is in the counties of Clay, Cass, Jackson and Platte.

This measure sought to amend the city charter so that the redistricting of the city would only occur after the results of the ten year census were available. This measure had been vetoed by the Mayor, but city council members overrode the veto and placed it on the November ballot. Due to the deadline being passed to add measures to the November ballot, the council had sought a court order to place the issue on to the ballot.[1] On September 8, a Jackson County judged ruled that the measure would be placed on the November ballot. None of the county board's of election objected to the measure being placed on the ballot.[2]
