TOPEKA (KSNT) – Early voting for the primary election starts on Monday in Topeka at the Shawnee County Election Office.
The office at 3420 SW Van Buren St opens at 8 a.m. and will close at 6 p.m. for the next two weeks.
This election is for city and school candidates who are running in the primary.
You have to live within Topeka’s city limits to vote for the mayor or District 3 city council.
Shawnee County’s Election Commissioner Andrew Howell said you can also vote if you live in A-4 in the Seaman School district – as there are candidates running there as well.
“The law requires that there be more than three people running in a particular race to cause a primary and so that’s why we see we’ve got 5 for city council, district 3, we’ve got 5 for the mayor, and 4 running for that school district seat,” Howell said.
There will be an election county-wide for all school district seats and cities on November 2.
