Main, Mulvane Mayfield Grocery Store Annex ———Other election information:KEY RACESU.S. Sen. Jerry Moran is seeking a second, six-year term and is expected to win easily over a largely unknown opponent, D.J. Smith, of Osawatomie, in the GOP primary. Sumner County voters will vote for this race.The biggest race in the state is between Huelskamp against Marshall. Sumner County voters will not vote in this election.POLLING HOURSAll polling places across the state must open at 7 a.m., though local election officials have the authority to allow voting to begin at 6 a.m.Polling closes at 7 p.m. local time.WHO CAN VOTEKansas recognizes only three political parties, Republican, Democratic and Libertarian. Libertarians do not appear on the primary ballot because they choose their candidates at a state convention.People who affiliate with one party when they register to vote can’t vote in another party’s primary. But voters who register as unaffiliated can declare an affiliation at the polls and vote in a Republican or Democratic primary.Also, under a 2011 state law, voters must show a photo ID at the polls.PROOF OF CITIZENSHIPElection officials will be required to count potentially thousands of votes in legislative and local races even though the people casting them didn’t comply with a 2013 state law requiring them to document their U.S. citizenship when registering.A federal judge ruled in May that people who registered at motor vehicle offices without providing proof of their citizenship still had the right to cast ballots in federal races under federal law.The federal judge’s ruling prompted Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican who has championed the proof-of-citizenship law, to direct county election officials to set their ballots aside for later review and count only their votes in federal races.But the American Civil Liberties Union filed a state-court lawsuit challenging Kobach’s rule, and a Shawnee County District Court judge ruled Friday that all votes on such ballots must be counted. Ahead of Tuesday’s primary, about 17,600 people registered at motor vehicle offices without providing proof of their U.S. citizenship.TURNOUTKobach predicted Monday that 24 percent of the state’s 1.75 million registered voters will cast ballots in the primary.That’s slightly higher than the 23.2 percent turnout in 2012, the last year there was a presidential election.Kobach said he expects 410,000 ballots to be cast and that county election officials already have received about 70,000 advance ballots.He said while there are hotly contested races that will boost turnout in some areas, there’s no statewide contest resulting in aggressive get-out-the-vote efforts.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.

Well · 210 weeks ago Not having to prove your citizenship to vote is pure garbage. What is so hard about pulling out an ID? This country is going to hell in a hand basket thanks to liberals.
