When voters go to cast ballots in the runoff election on July 31, all they need to have with them is a voter registration card or driverâ€™s license.
Jan Barnes, Hutchinson County Clerk, said that voters do not need to have the â€śspecial cardâ€ť that may have been handed out to them when they voted in the May 29, 2012.
â€śIf they didnâ€™t vote in the primary, they can still vote in the runoff election,â€ť she said.
She said if a person voted Democratic in the primary, they will not be able to vote Republican in the runoff, as party lines cannot be crossed in a runoff election.
