Polls opened at 6 this morning in Sedgwick County for the primary election.

Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman says 7 polling places have moved since the last election. Notifications were sent out in June to about 26,000 people affected by the changes, but she recommends all voters check their polling place.

The last day to change party affiliations was June 1.

“If you are affiliated with a party you do have to vote that ballot," Lehman says. "You can’t switch your party on Election Day.”

Republican and Democratic sample ballots are available for review online. Lehman says everyone still needs to bring a government-issued ID in order to vote. The polls remain open until 7 p.m.
