From KHSA Executive Director Peggy Kelly:
Advance voting began on October 17. Skip the lines and vote early! Your location for early voting is usually not the same place you would vote on the actual election day. To find your early voting spot in your county, see this PDF document. http://www.kssos.org/elections/18elec/2018_General_Election_Advance_Voting_Times_Locations.pdf
There are so many attempts to divide us. Our children unite us.
