Deadline Approaching to Register to Vote for the Kansas Primary Election

There’s a little time left to register to vote in Kansas for the August primary election. The deadline is Tuesday.

Shawnee County Election Commissioner Andrew Howell says people who have moved or otherwise need to register may want to contact the local election office for help.

“I recommended, if you can, at least call us and try to put together a plan to come in to the office. As close as we’re getting, that’s my preferred method, at this point. Then you don’t worry about did the mail get there, are all the forms correct,” says Howell.
There is also the option to register to vote online.

People registering for the first time in Kansas will need to prove their citizenship by providing a document such as a birth certificate to the county election office. Copies of citizenship documents can be submitted in person, by mail or electronically.

It’s too late to switch political parties before the primary election, but unaffiliated voters or people registering for the first time can still choose a political party.
