During today's meeting, the Board of County Commissioners recognized September 23 as National Voter Registration Day. Kansas residents can register to vote or change their name, address, and party affiliation for the November 2014 election through Tuesday, Oct. 14.
Here's what you need to know about registering to vote or changing your information.
- To register, you must be a United States citizen, a resident of the State of Kansas, and have reached the age of 18 years before the next election.
- If registering in Kansas for the first time, you must provide evidence of U.S. citizenship. This requirement does not affect voters changing their current Kansas registration.
