The Mission of the Election Office: To honestly, fairly and according to law administer elections for all voters; and to accurately report the results in a timely manner.
It’s “Road Construction Season” and many projects are underway in Topeka and Shawnee County. Some may affect your usual route to your voting place. Access is available to all Shawnee County voting places, but alternate routes/access may be necessary for some locations. Therefore, you may want to plan your route before the November 4th General Election. Advance voting is available for your convenience.
