People who have not yet registered to vote, or need to make changes to their current registrations, have a couple more days to do so and still vote in the Nov. 6 General Election.
But, this Friday is the deadline.
County Clerk/Election Commissioner Debbie Clark said her office will be open until 6 p.m. MT Friday to take voter registrations.
Anyone who has not yet registered to vote (including those who have turned 18 recently), or has changed their name or address since the last election, need to make the 6 p.m. Friday deadline.
Clark noted those who have changed names or addresses can still vote Nov. 6, but it will be on a provisional ballot. And, that involves a lot of paperwork, she said.
Clark said she hasn’t seen a bug rush in new voter registrations so far, but early voting continues to be brisk.
Close to 200 people in Chase County have already voted as of Tuesday afternoon, according to Clark’s records. She said that is pretty close to the early voting numbers four years ago when the election also included a race for U.S. President.
