Questions about voting or voter registration?

Shawnee County Election Office

Kansas Secretary of State

For questions about governing policies of your city, county, or state, please call your mayor’s office or county commissioner’s office.

VOTING = YOU make decisions, not somebody else!

One of the greatest privileges and solemn obligations as an American citizen is the exercise of the right to vote. The United States can be a government “of the people, by the people and for the people” only if we, the people, cast an informed vote in every election.

Informed voting is the key to good government. Find out all you can about the candidates and issues. Read, listen, look, and think before you vote. Casting your ballot is important, but informing yourself before you cast that ballot is the mark of a citizen who is truly dedicated to fulfilling his or her duty.

LWVTSC recommends using the federal registration form, which does not require proof of citizenship.

Due to recent court rulings, if you applied to register to vote at a Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles office or if you applied to register to vote using the “Federal Form”  you may vote the full ballot.

Rules concerning voter registration applications submitted without proof of citizenship:

If your name appears on the suspense list you may need to provide proof of citizenship (birth certificate or naturalization document) to the Shawnee County Election Office.

Are you registered to vote? 

We recommend that anytime you make a change in your voter registration, you check www.voteks.org to confirm that your registration was recorded correctly.

If your name is not shown or any of the information is not accurate, you should contact the Shawnee County Election Office immediately to get your information corrected and protect your right to vote in the next election.




Your VOTE Matters!
