Tuesday November 3, 2020 (Election Day)

Advance ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received in the county election office no later than three days after the election. Advance ballots may alternatively be hand-delivered to the county election office or to any polling place within the county by close of polls.

Check Your Voter Registration

Any registered voter can vote by mail or in-person prior to Election Day. To vote by mail, voters should contact their county election officer and request an advance ballot application. The contact information for your county election office can be found here. A sample of what your application will look like can be found here.

 

Although the normal deadline for this process is October 27, Kansas law states that any votes with a temporary illness or disability (such as being hospitalized and unable to vote in-person) can apply for an advanced ballot up until the polls close on Election Day.

Return Your Application

Your county election office will clarify the proper address and process for sending in your filled-out application.

Return Your Completed Ballot

Advance ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received in the county election office no later than three days after the election. Advance ballots may alternatively be hand-delivered to the county election office or to any polling place within the county by close of polls.

 

Because Kansas law states that sick, disabled or Non-English Proficient voters may receive assistance in applying for and casting advance voting ballots, please inquire with your county election office about opportunities that exist to assist with the return of your filled-out ballot.
