Tuesday is the last day Kansans can register to vote for next month’s primary election.
Kansans can register to vote online or in person at their county election office, according to the Kansas secretary of state’s website. They can also mail in registration forms that can be downloaded from the same site. The documents must be postmarked by Tuesday to meet the deadline.
If someone is registering to vote for the first time in Kansas, they need to show proof of citizenship, said Bryan Caskey, director of elections at the Kansas secretary of state’s office. That proof needs to be shown either when someone registers to vote or before Election Day, he said. Those with a Kansas driver’s license or ID card can register to vote online, Caskey said.
The primary will be held Aug. 2, with the general election on Nov. 8. The deadline to register to vote in the general election is Oct. 18.
The deadline to register to vote in Missouri’s primary election was July 6. Those who want to vote in Missouri’s general election must register by Oct. 12, according to the Missouri secretary of state’s website.
