How to Vote in Kansas
If you are a Kansas resident and would like to vote in the upcoming elections, there are a few steps you need to follow. First, you will need to register to vote. You can do this by going to the Kansas Secretary of State’s website and filling out the voter registration form. Once you have registered, you will need to request an absentee ballot if you will not be able to vote in person on election day. You can do this by contacting your county election office.
In order to vote in-person in Kansas, you must be a registered voter. You can register to vote online, by mail, or in person. The deadline to register to vote is 21 days before the election.
If you are registering to vote for the first time, you will need to provide proof of citizenship. Acceptable forms of proof of citizenship include a birth certificate, passport, naturalization papers, or tribal enrollment papers.
When you go to vote in-person on Election Day, you will need to bring a valid photo ID with you. Acceptable forms of ID include a driver’s license, state ID card, passport, student ID card, military ID card, or tribal ID card.
If you do not have a valid photo ID with you when you go to vote, you can still cast a provisional ballot. A provisional ballot is a regular ballot that is set aside until the voter’s eligibility can be confirmed.
You may vote by mail if you are:
-A uniformed service member or spouse/dependents of one
-A student attending college outside of your county of registration
-An individual temporarily residing outside of the U.S.
-A person with a disability
-A person 65 years or older

If you are unable to vote on Election Day, you may vote by advance ballot, also known as absentee voting. You do not need a reason to vote by advance ballot in Kansas.
Any registered voter may request an advance ballot. To do so, contact your county election officer or fill out the Federal Post Card Application available at www.fvap.gov. The deadline to request an advance ballot is noon the day before the election. Once you have requested an absentee ballot, you will automatically receive one for all future elections unless you notify your county election officer that you no longer wish to do so.
If you have already voted in person on Election Day, you cannot vote by advance ballot.
Advance ballots must be received by your county election office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted. Ballots postmarked by Election Day but not received until after 7 p.m., will not be counted
