Influx of Voter Registration Applications Continue to be Processed
(Sedgwick County, Kan.) – In light of early voting beginning Monday, October 19, Sedgwick County voters are asked to check VoterView to check his/her voter registration status before heading to the polls.
The Election Office continues to process registration applications that were submitted before the deadline on October 13. The influx of applications submitted leading up to October 13 was much higher than expected; staff will continue to process these applications and additional staff will support the office by entering the data for several days. All registration applications will be updated in time for Election Day, November 3.
Additionally, if a voter requested an advance ballot-by-mail, he/she is strongly encouraged to vote that ballot rather than voting in person at a polling place. Voters who choose to not vote the ballot-by-mail for any reason must vote provisionally at a polling location. Advance ballots will be counted by the Election Office prior to Election Day provided the ballot is properly completed and returned.
Advance ballots may be dropped off at the Election Office, 510 N. Main, Ste. 101 or at one of the 14 ballot drop boxes placed around the county. They may be mailed to the Election Office, dropped off at a polling location during early voting, or dropped off at a polling location on Election Day.
