Voter Registration for the General Election ends October 15, 2019

Every voter must show photo ID when voting. A voter requesting a ballot by mail must either write his or her driver’s license number on the application or send a copy of a photo ID to get a ballot.

The following documents may be used as identification for purposes of voting in Kansas:

  • Driver’s license or ID card issued by Kansas or by another state
  • U.S. passport
  • Student ID card from an accredited postsecondary education institution in Kansas
  • U.S. military ID
  • Employee badge or identification document issued by a government office
  • Concealed carry of handgun license issued by Kansas or by another state
  • Public assistance identification card issued by a government office

A voter age 65 or older may use an expired document.

Certain individuals are exempt from the ID requirements: permanent advance voters (voters with illnesses or disabilities), overseas military voters and their spouses and dependents, and voters with religious objections who sign declarations.
