KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Don't vote advance if you've requested mail-in ballots. That's the message from the Johnson County Elections Board.

JOCO Election Commissioner Connie Schmidt says that people who requested mail-in ballot should not take part in advance voting. She says that if people go vote in-person because they haven't yet received their mail-in ballot, they will have to vote on a provisional ballot, which takes extra resources.

Mail-in ballots were just sent out on Wednesday, October 14, so not all of them have arrived into mailboxes, yet.

Advance voting began Saturday in Johnson County.
