KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The voting experience ended in tears and frustration for one woman who says she tried to follow all the rules. 

But her vote will not count. 

Amanda Steele recently moved from Platte County to Jackson County. She turned in paperwork and updated her voter registration card. 

She even received a letter back, acknowledging the election board received it. 

But on Tuesday when Steele showed up to vote and waited for an hour, she was informed she could not vote. 

"I went through the channels,” she said. “ hey sent me a card, I requested a card, they sent me the card. I filled it out.”

The Election Board told KCTV5 Steele’s information came after the Oct. 12 deadline. 

Because she no longer resides in Platte County, she cannot vote there. 

It’s a tough pill to swallow if you have strong political feelings.
