The primary election is in ONE WEEK! By this point, you’re registered to vote,know your district and have read up on the candidates because you’re a civically engaged Planned Parenthood supporter-thank you! Here’s what you need to know in the final stretch.
If you’re unaffiliated, you can pick a party when you vote: If you’re registered to vote but currently unaffiliated with a party, you can choose to affiliate with the Republican Party and vote a Republican ballot, or to affiliate with the Democratic Party and vote a Democratic ballot in the primary election. For more information, see Kansas’ Primary Voting Rules HERE.
You can still apply to vote by mail: Advance ballots are available until Friday, August 1 to help you skip the lines on Election Day! Just go HERE, complete and print your application, and mail or fax it to your local county election office, which you can look up HERE.
You can vote early: Your county election election office, which you can look up HERE, should be hosting early voting during business hours and potentially on weekends-another great way to beat the crowds! Be sure to call ahead and verify hours, since they may vary. The deadline for in-person advance voting is noon on Monday, August 4.
Be sure to bring your ID: Any in-person voting, whether early or on Election Day, now requires you to bring photo identification. To learn what forms of ID are acceptable, go HERE.
