Wichita, Kansas (KSNW) – Pre-face-to-face voting will begin on Monday, October 18, in Sedgwick County.
Before heading to vote, electoral workers encourage voters to check their registration status online on VoterView.
Sedgwick County election officials say there is an influx of registration requests.
“It was more and more every day, not just one day. Of course, there were over 8,000 registrations on the final day,” said Melissa Schneiders of the Sedgwick County Deputy Election Commission.
Election workers are very busy working on the unprocessed portion of their registration. According to Schneiders, the county has hired additional staff to assist in processing the data.
“We are working as hard as we can to keep everyone up to date. We expect all these registrants to be ready to go later this week,” Schnieders said.
Workers have prepared machines, stylist pens, sign-in booths, and plexiglass for early voters.
Sedgwick County is already aware that pre-voting preparations have been successful.
As of Sunday, October 18, the county has already received about 1,500 ballots among the 14 ballot dropboxes.
“I love the idea that there are more options for delivering ballots,” said Debbie Mendoza after dropping the ballots.
If you plan to vote early, be sure to bring your government-issued ID. If your license expires in the summer or fall, the election authorities shouldn’t worry.
Voting takes place at the historic Sedgwick County Courthouse at 8am and at the Intrust Bank Arena at 10am.
As the November 3rd election approaches, earlier polling stations will open throughout Sedgwick County.
