Early Voting

Any voter may may vote in person in the county election office starting the Tuesday before election day, or up to 20 days before the election, depending on the county. Contact your election office to inquire about early voting options in your area.

Absentee Voting

Kansas does not offer all mail elections when a candidate appears on the ballot. Advance Voting by Mail is only available when there is a question on the ballot at the local level. You do not need an excuse to advance vote by mail ballot. However, you do need to apply to county election offices to have an advanced by mail ballot mailed to you for each election. If your signature on the application or on your ballot does not match your signature on your voter registration, you may be contacted for verification purposes.

If you have someone else return your ballot for you, this person will simply sign a statement that no undue influence has been exercised on you and your directions have been followed.
