We’re Passionate about Voting
The League of Women Voters believes the right to vote is the beating heartbeat of American democracy, so we work to strengthen and protect the right to vote. We register voters, we encourage people to vote and to participate in the democratic process, we support legal challenges to voter suppression efforts.

Kansas residents who registered to vote on or after January 1, 2013, should verify their status by checking the database at VoteKS.org. If your name is not on the roll, please contact your local election office.
LWVK recommends everyone use the Federal Voter Registration Application, as does the Shawnee County Election Office.
Wondering About Your Status?
You should receive a voter card in the mail when your registration is official. You can also check your registration online. If you move, you must reregister. If you are not on the voter list, check for your name on the “suspense” list, and or contact your county election office to explain the problem.
