Kansas ID requirements for absentee ballots

Who is eligible for Absentee Voting?

Any registered Kansas voter can vote absentee.

Do you need to submit ID with your absentee ballot request?

Photo ID, such as:

  • Driver’s license or non-driver’s ID issued by any state;
  • Kansas or any state concealed handgun license;
  • US Passport;
  • Government employee ID badge;
  • Military ID;
  • Student ID from any Kansas accredited educational institution;
  • Government-issued public assistance ID card

Do you need to submit ID with your ballot?

No, but the signature on the vote-by-mail ballot must match the voter registration signature.

If you registered to vote by mail and are voting by absentee ballot in your first federal election, you must enclose a copy of your photo ID or document bearing your name and residence address in the envelope with your voted ballot.
