Election Commissioner Howell is also reminding voters of the following items for voter’s going to the Polling Place on Election Day:
Voters should note the location of their voting place. Voters may verify their voting place by calling the Election Office at (785) 251-5900 or online at: myvoteinfo.voteks.org/VoterView/Polling PlaceSearch.do. It’s important for voters to go to their assigned polling location as only that polling place will have the voter’s correct ballot. Each precinct has a unique ballot due to the configuration of districts.
Anyone with any questions concerning their voter registration status may call the Election Office at (785) 251-5900. Additional information is also available on the Shawnee County Election website at www.snco.us/election/. Voters who require assistance should also call the Election Office.
