Registered Kansas voters must show a photo ID at the polls to vote.
If you are a registered voter but do not present an acceptable ID at the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. You must take additional steps for your ballot to count.
In order for your ballot to count, you must submit a valid form of ID in person at your county elections office, by mail, or electronic means “sometime before the county canvass.” Find your local election office.
By law, counties may canvass on the Monday following the election or on the following Thursday (the second Thursday after the election).
Exemptions from photo ID requirements exist for:
- permanent advance voters (voters with illness or disabilities)
- military and overseas voters and their spouses and dependents
- voters with religious objections who sign a Declaration of Religious Objection
