Separate application for each calendar year

The FPCA is valid for the calendar year. The most efficient way to keep informed of upcoming elections is to complete the FPCA annually, with every change of address and at least 90 days prior to an election you wish to vote in. 

Receiving your ballot

Federal and state law require ballots to be sent out 45 days prior to Election Day to those who have an active FPCA on file. If you submit your FPCA within 45 days of the election, your ballot will be sent as your application is processed in our office. If you have any questions contact our staff at [email protected]

Your voted ballot may be returned by e-mail: [email protected] or fax: (913) 791-1753. If you choose to return your ballot through the postal service, it must be returned in the envelope provided. Whichever method you use, your ballot must be received by the Election Office no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted.  

If your voted ballot is returned by e-mail or fax, you are not required to also mail your ballot. To confirm that the Election Office received your ballot, or to ask a question at any time, contact our staff at [email protected]
