RULES CONCERNING VOTER REGISTRATION APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED WITHOUT PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP

 

This notice covers persons who have applied to register to vote and have not yet provided proof of citizenship. Due to recent court rulings, if you have applied to register to vote at a Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles office or if you have applied to register to vote using the "Federal Form" voter registration application (as opposed to the standard ‘state form’) and have not yet provided proof of citizenship, you are registered to vote for the November 8, 2016, general election. Your name will appear on the poll book for your voting location and you will be given a standard ballot. There is nothing further you need to provide for the November 8, 2016, general election.

For elections that take place after the November 8, 2016, general election, it is at this time unknown whether you will be registered to vote depending on subsequent court rulings and should provide an acceptable form of proof of citizenship to your local county election office or to the Secretary of State to ensure future registration. For a complete list of acceptable forms of proof of citizenship, visit www.gotvoterid.com.

 

If you have questions concerning your eligibility or this notice you may contact tyour local county election office or the Secretary of State’s office at (800) 262-8683.

Online Voter Registration

To register to vote online, you must have a valid Kansas driver's license or nondriver's identification card, as you are required to use a legal signature to complete the registration process. The online registration option uses your driver's license signature to do so. If you do not have either of these Kansas identification cards, you will need to complete a voter registration application available below. You must re-register each time you change your name, address, or party affiliation for voting, otherwise the Election Office will have outdated information. To register to vote online, please visit the Kansas Online Voter Registration Application.

Registering to Vote In-Person

Any change to your Kansas voter registration should use a Kansas voter registration application form, which we have available below.

Proof of Citizenship Requirement for First-Time Registrants

Kansas law does require new registrants that use the State of Kansas Voter Registration Application to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote. We recommend you send a copy of your proof of citizenship document directly to our office to assure successful submission.

 

K.S.A. 25-2309 Citizenship Registration Requirement: Beginning January 1, 2013, anyone registering to vote in Kansas for the first time is required to provide a qualified document attesting United States citizenship before they are registered to vote.

  • If you do not provide a copy of your citizenship document by midnight the day before Election Day, you are not eligible to vote.
  • If you do not provide a copy of your citizenship document within 90 days of submitting your voter registration application, your application will be cancelled and you will be required to submit a new voter registration application.
  •  
  • If registered before January 1, 2013, you do not need to show proof of citizenship. Registrants who fail to present appropriate documentation when they initially register to vote have until midnight the day before an election to submit proof of citizenship and vote in that next election.
  • Until we receive your documentation, your voter registration will be held in suspense status for 90 days from your initial registration attempt.
     
  • Note: If you submitted your proof of citizenship when you updated your driver's license, confirm your voting status with the Election Office. If you have not received your "Certificate of Registration" in the mail, contact the Election Office to confirm your registration status.

The Election Office only needs a copy of your citizenship document; you can mail, fax, or scan/email a copy of your proof of citizenship to our office.

Acceptable proof of citizenship documents include:

Birth certificate that verifies United States citizenship

United States passport or pertinent pages of the applicant's valid or expired United States passport identifying the applicant and the applicant's passport number

United States naturalization documents or the number of the certificate of naturalization

Other documents or methods of proof of United States citizenship issued by the federal government pursuant to the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952

Bureau of Indian Affairs card number, tribal treaty card number or tribal enrollment number

Consular report of birth abroad of a citizen of the United States

Certificate of citizenship issued by the United States Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services

Certification of report of birth issued by the United States Department of State

American Indian card, with KIC classification, issued by the United States Department of Homeland Security (Note: This document applies only to a small Texas band of the Kickapoo tribe with slightly more than 50 members.)

Final adoption decree showing the applicant's name and United States birthplace

United States military record of service showing applicant's place of birth in the United States

Extract from a United States hospital record of birth created at the time of the applicant's birth indicating the applicant's place of birth in the United States

Only if the agency indicates on the applicant's driver's license or nondriver's identification card that the person has provided satisfactory proof of United States citizenship, then a driver's license or nondriver's identification card issued by the Kansas Division of Vehicles or the equivalent governmental agency of another state within the United States (NOTE: The Kansas Driver's License does not qualify.)

Registration Deadline

You may register (or re-register) until (21) days prior to each election. Voter registration is closed during the (21) day period before each election. Applications must be postmarked no later than the 21st day prior to any election and received in the Election Office by the 9th day before the election to be valid. Applications postmarked or received after the deadline are not entered until after the election.

Voter Registration re-opens the day following each election.

When do I need to update or change my voter registration?

Complete a new Voter Registration Application and send it to the Election Office:

  •  
  • If you have moved,
  •  
  • If you have a name change,
  •  
  • If you want to change your political party affiliation.

In Kansas, the choices are Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, and Not Affiliated.

 

Note: Party affiliation changes are prohibited during the period beginning June 1st and ending on or after August 31st for partisan primary elections in even-numbered years.

How do I verify I am registered to vote?

After you submit your completed voter registration application you will become a registered voter when the county election officer adds your name to the county voter registration list.

When your Voter Registration Application has been entered, a Certificate of Registration will be mailed to you. This voter ID card provides information regarding your Ward and Precinct, the location of your polling place, and your elected officials who represent you. The Certificate of Registration may not be used as ID to vote because it does not include your photo.

You can always confirm your current voter registration information online at VoterView

Keep your Certificate of Registration in a safe place for future reference. You may obtain a replacement certificate by asking the Election Office to send you a new one. The Election Office may also issue you a new certificate if your polling place changes or you re-register.

Federal Service Voter

To register, complete a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) and mail it to the Election Office.

Postage is already on this card.  You may obtain this card from the U.S. Embassy, your Commanding Officer or Voting Assistance Officer.

If you are unable to obtain a copy, download and print the Federal Post Card Application.  Remember to add postage to this card.

Kansas does not require the form to be notarized or witnessed.

Your application is valid for (1) calendar year.  You are eligible to receive all ballots issued during the calendar year at the address you give on the FPCA.  If you move or are re-assigned during any calendar year, please be sure to send a new FPCA so you can receive your ballots.  Election mail cannot be forwarded.  The Election Office needs your current address.

The completed FPCA may be sent by:

  • Mail:
    • Saline County Election Office: PO Box 5040, Salina, KS 67402
  • Email
  • Fax:  (785) 309-5820
