REGISTRATION & VOTING
Kansas elections are conducted by the counties with oversight
by the Secretary of State's office. Voter registration application
forms must be submitted to the county election officer where the applicant lives.
You may also register to vote or change your registration information online with a valid Kansas driver's license.
The deadline to register to vote is the twenty-first day before any election.
Counties are required to post a Voter Rights and Responsibilities poster (español) and Notice to Voters (español) at each polling place on Election Day. Each county maintains a list of registered voters, and the secretary of state maintains a statewide list. This data is available for purchase by filling out a CVR form.
Each county chooses its voting system from a list of equipment certified by the secretary of state. Our office also compiles a list of what voting system each county uses. All certified systems must meet the requirements of the national voting system standards. Maps of national and state districts also are available to ensure you have all the information you need about voting matters.
Voters with a disability can learn about election law changes in Kansas by watching a video (with captions) called Get Ready to Vote in Kansas. A poll worker brochure describes requirements for accessibility for people with disabilities. Both were created by the Disability Rights Center and funded by the Kansas Secretary of State.
These useful voter guides can be read online or printed for distribution.
