Interest in this year’s election is prompting new voters to register and others to make sure their information is up to date so they can cast a ballot in November.
Nearly 2,500 more voters have registered since the primary election in May. And the county voter registration office is going through about 150 voter registration applications each day, deputy clerk Reagan Higdon said.
As of Friday, 95,074 Johnson County residents have registered to vote, according to the county voter registration office. In the primary election, 92,625 residents were registered.
The deadline to register to vote in time for the fall election is Oct. 9. Voters who have never registered will need to do so. And voters who have moved or changed their name need to update their registration.
