Voter Registration Deadline in Kansas is Tuesday

The clock is ticking to register to vote in time for the fall election. Tuesday is the deadline in Kansas.

Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew says voters can register in person, with a mail-in form or electronically. There’s a state website for registering online and voters can also email a scanned copy of the form to their county election office. Shew says some voters might also need to update their registration.

“It’s not just new registrants, it is people who maybe have moved since they last voted or changed something else, changed their name. This is not just the time to get registered but also the time to check up on your registration,” says Shew.
Shew says recent court rulings have confused many voters. The lawsuits are related to the Kansas requirement that people registering to vote for the first time prove their citizenship with a document such as a birth certificate.

As of right now, Shew says people who registered at the DMV or with the federal voter registration form will not be held to that requirement.
