Am I registered to vote?
You may verify your registration status through VoterView, a service provided by the Kansas Secretary of State. Please note that you must search with the exact name that you provided when registering to vote. Searching for Bill Smith will not find your registration information if you are registered as William Smith.
If you are unable to view your registration information through VoterView, please call our office at (913) 715-6800 to confirm your registration details.
Party Affiliation Changes
Kansas law (K.S.A 25-3304) prohibits party changes from noon on June 1 through August 31. This includes changing from one party to another or changing from being affiliated with a party to being an unaffiliated voter.
Any party changes submitted during this time will be rejected. If you still wish to change your party affiliation after the August Primary Election, you will need to resubmit another voter registration application on or after September 1.
