Riley County voters have a way to get to voting booths early for the primaries. Early voting began with mail in votes on July 18th, and now continues with the ballots opening at the Riley County office building on the second floor.
Riley County Clerk Rich Vargo say early voting allows voters to circumvent the crowds during regular polling, and tailor their time during the slower summer months.
Vargo says voters only need to follow the new voting rule of having a government issued ID to show election officials before casting their ballot.
Hours for early voting are 8am to 7pm weekdays, and 8am to 12pm on Saturdays. Early voting ends at 12pm on August 6th.
