about this state

Kansas, "wheat" love you! Lol but seriously we're big fans of your byways, your sunflowers, and yes, the fact that you gave us Paul Rudd! But unlike the ageless Paul Rudd, the rest of us are not getting any younger, so now's the time to get ready for one of the biggest election of our lifetime! Kansas will have two main elections in 2022. Its primary election will take place on August 2, and the general will be held on November 8. Here is everything you need to know to be a voter this year, Jayhawks! (Source: Ballot Ready)

  • Do I have to be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in my primary?

    Yes. Only registered members of a political party have the right to vote in that party's primary races. If you have no previous party affiliation, you may register with a party at the polls on primary election day and vote in that party's primary. However, there are also questions on the primary ballot that are non-partisan, such as ballot measures relating to reproductive rights. So even if you're not registered with any party, make sure to go vote in August!

  • Can I vote by mail?

    Yes! As long as you're registered, you can request to have your ballot mailed to you. Then, you can fill it out and mail it back by August 2. This is called an absentee ballot. You can request your absentee ballot here.

  • Can I vote early?

  • Do I need an ID?

    Yes, yes you do. A driver's license or state ID card, concealed handgun license, U.S. passport, employee ID, U.S. military ID, a student ID from a Kansas education institution, a public assistance ID, a tribal ID all work. If you're voting by mail, you must provide your current Kansas driver's license number on your application. If you can't, then you'll need to include a photocopy of another photo ID.
