Public works employee Jerry Brooks changed a street sign from The Paseo to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Kansas City, Mo., in April.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved removing Dr. Martin Luther King's name from one of the city's most historic boulevards, less than a year after the city council decided to rename The Paseo for the civil rights icon.

Unofficial results showed the proposal to remove King's name received nearly 70% of the vote, with just over 30% voting to retain King's name.
