Still time to register to vote in general election

Even if you didn’t vote in the recent August primary, or even if you’re not registered to vote, you still have time to register to vote in the Nov. 8 general election.

In order to register to vote in Kansas, you must be eligible and registered. Every resident of Kansas who is a U.S. citizen and is 18 years of age or older is eligible to register.

Individuals registering for the first time in Kansas are required to submit a document to prove their U.S. citizenship. A list of valid citizenship documents can be found online at gotvoterid.com.

First, obtain a Kansas voter registration application from the county election office or at voterks.org. You can also register online, but you must have a valid Kansas driver’s license or nondriver’s identification card.

Return the fully completed application to your county election office by mail, by fax, or in person. County addresses are listed on the back of the application.

The deadline to register to vote in the general election is Oct. 18; applications postmarked by that day will be accepted and processed for that election.

If the postmark is missing or illegible, the application will be accepted only if received in the election office by the ninth day before the election.

Applications received during the 20-day period when registration is closed will not be valid for that election. These applications will be processed beginning the day after the election.

If you have additional questions, call the Marion County election office at 620-382-2185.
