Are you eligible to vote?

The qualifications to vote are that an individual must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Be a resident of Kansas
    There is no length of residency requirement in Kansas, but a person must be registered 15 days before the election and must be a resident at the time of registration.
  • Be a U.S. citizen

If you are 17 years old but will be 18 before the next election you may register to vote. This does not allow you to vote in the primary or at any other election before turning eighteen.
