Local elections

All elections in the United States are overseen by the federal government, but most of the actual work is done at the state and local levels. This can make it confusing to know when polling places are open and where to vote, especially if you’re new to the state.

In Kansas, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, which is the first Tuesday of November. If you’re in line at your polling place when the polls close, you’ll be allowed to vote.

You can also vote early in Kansas if you’re unable to make it to the polls on Election Day. Early voting starts 20 days before Election Day and ends 11 days before Election Day. You can vote in person or by mail, but you will need an excuse if you want to vote by mail. Excuses include being 65 years of age or older, being out of town on Election Day, or having a physical disability that prevents you from going to the polls.

If you have any questions about voting in Kansas, you can contact your local election office or the Kansas Secretary of State’s office for more information.
