Voter Registration

Kansas residents who registered to vote on or after January 1, 2013, should verify their status by checking the Kansas Secretary of State’s database. 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. You may also register to vote online.

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 or change your name, you must re-register. If you are not on the voter list contact your county election office.
