VOTING = YOU make decisions, not somebody else!
One of the greatest privileges and solemn obligations as an American citizen is the exercise of the right to vote. The United States can be a government “of the people, by the people and for the people” only if we, the people, cast an informed vote in every election.
Informed voting is the key to good government. Find out all you can about the candidates and issues. Read, listen, look, and think before you vote. Casting your ballot is important, but informing yourself before you cast that ballot is the mark of a citizen who is truly dedicated to fulfilling his or her duty.
LWVK recommends using the federal registration form, which does not require proof of citizenship.
Rules concerning voter registration applications submitted without proof of citizenship: If your name appears on the Suspense List, you may need to provide proof of citizenship (birth certificate or naturalization document) to the Election Office.
Due to recent court rulings, if you applied to register to vote at a Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles office or if you applied to register to vote using the “Federal Form” you may vote the full ballot.
Are you registered to vote?
Check your registration at www.jocoelection.org. Select “Voter Lookup,” then enter your name and birth date. If you are registered, your information will show your voting districts.
Where do I vote?
Each eligible voter receives a voter registration card showing the ward and precinct number and the name and address of their polling location before each election.
Your VOTE Matters!
