Beginning Wednesday, Kansans can cast their votes for the Nov. 6 general elections as part of advanced voting. 
The last day to register to vote is today by 5 p.m. at either the county courthouse or online through the Kansas Secretary of State’s website, www.kssos.org.
Sherrie Riebel, Allen County clerk and election official, said the most important thing to remember when going to vote is to bring a photo ID.
The voter will be asked to state their address and it must match up with the address that was filled out when they registered to vote.
Allen Countians can request a ballot to be sent to their homes.
Though the last day for mailed ballot requests is on Nov. 2, Riebel said that is pushing it and to keep in mind turnaround time. The voter will first receive a ballot request form, which will need to be returned to the courthouse. Voters will then receive the official voting ballot. 
Ballots must be in the county clerks office by 7 p.m. Nov. 6.
According to Riebel, last year there were roughly 1,600 advanced voters and suspects on Wednesday there will be a substantial number of people showing up to vote.
“Advanced voting is set up to be convenient for the voter,” Riebel said.
Traditionalists can still go down to the polls on Nov. 6 to cast their vote.
