The new Kansas voting law—
it's just that easy.

Woman and man with ID

If you're a registered voter, bring one of these to the polls:
Driver's License, Nondriver ID Card, Concealed Carry Handgun License, U.S. Passport, Government Employee ID, U.S. Military ID, Kansas College ID, Government Public Assistance ID or Indian Tribe ID. (See List of IDs for more detailed descriptions.)

Changes in Kansas Voting Law

On April 18, 2011, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed the Kansas Secure and Fair Elections (S.A.F.E.) Act (Español) into law. Sponsored by the Office of the Kansas Secretary of State, this website contains information every voter should know about changes impacting elections under the S.A.F.E. law.

Starting January 1, 2012:

  1. Kansas voters must show photographic identification when casting a vote in person; and
  2. Kansas voters must have their signature verified and include a copy of an acceptable form of photographic identification or provide a full Kansas driver's license or nondriver ID number when voting by mail.

Starting January 1, 2013:

Persons registering to vote for the first time in Kansas must prove U.S. citizenship when registering to vote.

Notice Regarding Voter Registration Status

Due to recent court rulings, if you have applied to register to vote at a Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles office or if you have applied to register to vote using the “Federal Form” voter registration application (as opposed to the standard ‘state form’) and have not yet provided proof of citizenship, you are registered to vote. Your name will appear on the poll book for your voting location and you will be given a standard ballot. There is nothing further you need to provide unless and until you receive further notice.

Voter Registration Kit

(The kit is designed to print as a booklet, on both sides of a page and stapled on the left.)
