Tuesday is the last day for Kansans to register to vote in the Aug. 5 primary election.

Voters must be at least 18 years old by election day and a U.S. citizen. For proof of citizenship, registrants can use various documents, including a birth certificate, U.S. passport or naturalization documents.

Would-be voters who are on the suspense list because they haven't completed the registration process by proving citizenship have until Aug. 4 to provide proof, according to Reno County Deputy Election Officer Jenna Fager.

Walk-in early voting will start July 24, in the Veterans Room in the Reno County Courthouse basement. Early voting will be available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, ending at noon Aug. 4.
