Elections

Got Photo ID?
Every voter must show photo ID when voting. A voter requesting a ballot by mail must either write his or her driver's license number on the application or send a copy of a photo ID to get a ballot. A voter age 65 or older may use an expired document.

Certain individuals are exempt from the ID requirements: permanent advance voters (voters with illnesses or disabilities), overseas military voters and their spouses and dependents, and voters with religious objections who sign declarations.


Registration Restrictions
To register to vote, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen and a resident of the State of Kansas
  • Have abandoned your former residence and/or name
  • Have reached the age of 18 before the next statewide general election
  • Have your civil rights restored if convicted of a felony
