To register to vote in Kansas, a person needs to be a United States citizen and at least 18 years of age by the next state/federal general election.
If convicted of a felony, a person must have completed all the terms of his or her sentence before regaining voting eligibility. Voter registration needs to be done 21 days before an election in order to vote in that election. Voter registration must be updated when one moves or changes his or her name.
Until further notice, LWVK recommends using the Federal Voter Application Form for new voter registrants.
You must show a government-issued photo identification when voting or when requesting a advance-mail ballot. People over 65 years of age may use an expired photo ID.
