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, 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.

What if I haven't returned my advance ballot?

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 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
