WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Are you going to vote today?


All the campaigning comes down to this: Today, voters in both parties will choose candidates for U.S. Senate, U.S. House and a slate of state and local offices.

When can I vote?

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. in Sedgwick and Butler counties.

In Harvey and Sumner counties, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Not sure if you are registered?

Go to the state's website, https://myvoteinfo.voteks.org to find out.

Who can vote?

Voters registered as Republicans can vote only in the Republican primary; Democrats can vote only in the Democratic primary.

People who registered as unaffiliated or independent voters can vote in either one. But those who want to vote in the Republican primary will have to fill out a new voter registration card at the polls and join the Republican party.

Not sure where to vote?

In Sedgwick County, call the Election Commissioner's Office 316-660-7100 to find out your polling place.

In other counties:

* Butler, 316-322-4229

* Harvey, 316-284-6840

* Sumner, 620-326-3395

Not sure whom to vote for?

Consult the online voter guide at Kansas.com.

Fill in your home address and get a sample ballot for your precinct with information about each candidate.

What if I haven't returned my advance ballot?

Mail ballots must be returned to the county Election Office by 7 p.m. today.

In Sedgwick County, that's in the Historic County Courthouse, 510 N. Main.

Do not take ballots to the polls. They won't be counted. Ballots returned without a signature won't be counted.

For results

Check Kansas.com after polls close tonight for the earliest possible results. We'll have state results roughly 15 minutes before they are posted publicly at the secretary of state's office.

For fun

So what if no one sent them an engraved invitation? That's not keeping Carrie Rengers and Denise Neil from attending tonight's election watch parties. They'll report who's out and about, who knows how to throw a decent party and who is whooping it up or off crying in the corners — at least until they're thrown out. Read their party reports on Kansas.com.
