The last day to register to vote or change your registration information in Kansas for the 2012 general election is Tuesday, October 16th, 2012. Advance voting for the 2012 general election begins Wednesday, October 17th, 2012, and closes on Friday, November 2nd, 2012 (if by mail-in) or Monday, November 5th, 2012 (if in person).
The 2012 general election is for both state and national office and will be held on Tuesday, November 6th, 2012. Unlike in the primary election, you can vote for a candidate from any party in the general election (a registered Republican voter can vote for a Democratic candidate, and vice versa). One doesn’t have to be affiliated with a particular party to vote in the general election – in other words, you can be registered as an independent.
