Help with voter registration

Kansas residents that registered to vote on or after January 1, 2013, can verify their status by checking the database at VoteKS.org.

Thousands of voter registrations in the state of Kansas have been put in “suspense.” Check to see if your name appears on the August 2016 suspense list (by county).

If your name appears on the suspense list, please contact your local election office to find out how to ensure you are able to vote this year.

Having problems registering to vote or trying to vote? LWVK can help.
The new voter registration laws can be confusing. If you are having problems navigating the system, either registering or voting, the League would like to hear your story. We are serious about protecting every citizen’s right to vote. We will help you or find someone with answers. We will also advocate for changes needed to streamline the process. Please tell us your story.
