“Remember voting day tomorrow! So everybody needs to get out and vote that’s registered.”
This reminder came from City Commissioner Larry Wiens during this morning’s regular city commission meeting. And while it may too late to register to vote for this primary election, it’s not too late for the upcoming general election come November.
“It’s not only a privilege to vote, it’s really a responsibility in a democracy,” said Mayor Tom Brown. “You all have some feeling, and so we need to get out and vote.”
Early voting numbers in McPherson County have been much higher this year, with almost 500 casting early votes as of this morning, in addition to absentee ballots.
Approximately 15,000 people are registered to vote in all of McPherson County. Early voting closed today at noon, but registered voters can vote tomorrow at various venues including the McPherson County Courthouse and the city offices in McPherson on East Kansas Avenue.
