KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Aug. 2 primary election is days away, which means it’s a good time to start preparing before you cast your vote.

No matter where you live, there will likely be several races and questions on your ballot with names and issues you might be unfamiliar with.

One of the first steps in deciding how you’ll vote is figuring out what’s on your ballot.

In Kansas, to find your sample ballot, visit the Secretary of State’s VoterView website and enter some basic personal information. There, the site will provide you with your ballot based on your political party for the upcoming election.

In Missouri, visit the Secretary of State’s Voter Outreach Center website and enter your address. It will provide you with the candidates and issues on your ballot.

You can even fill out and take your sample ballot with you to your polling place to help as you fill out the official ballot on election day.
