Early in-person voting begins in Sedgwick County


Today begins early in-person voting for the Kansas primary.

For those that want to get a head start and avoid lines, early voting can be done at the election office at the Sedgwick County Courthouse on Main Street.

The office is open for early voting Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. until August 3.

The last day of early voting is August 6, and the office will stay open from 8 a.m. to noon.

Kansas conducts primary elections for the Republican and Democratic parties, according to election officials.

“In order to vote in one of those primaries, you have to belong to one of those parties,” explained election commissioner Tabitha Lehman. “You’re going to have to vote that ballot because that’s the party you belong to. You can’t change your party now. If you’re unaffiliated, you could select a party when you go to vote.”

Lehman added that there are two Ron Esteses on the Republican ballot. Voters need to know who is who since election workers can’t help.

Make sure you bring a government issued ID to check in at the polls.

On August 2-3 and 4, there will be additional locations open for early voting. The locations and times can be found on the Sedgwick County election website.

The primary election takes place on August 7.
