The deadline to register to vote for the November election is Tuesday.
Carole Neal is the Voter Service chair with the League of Women Voters of Kansas, a nonprofit that encourages people to participate in government. She says people seem more aware of this election, which is reflected in more people registering to vote.
Neal said people realize their voice needs to be heard.
“We’ve really tried to educate ... them how one vote can make a difference, especially in a local election,” she said.
