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 subject only to further official notice.
If you have questions concerning your eligibility or this notice you may contact your local county election officer Angie Kirchner at (620) 364-2191 or the Secretary of State's Office at 800-262-8683.

Federal Services Voting
Federal services voting is available for military personnel and their dependents as well as civilians and their dependents living abroad. A voter must qualify according to the criteria to vote with a federal services ballot. Federal Post Card Applications must be submitted to the Kansas county election officer where the voter is registered or resides.
It is important to note that federal services voting is not the same as advance voting. Registered voters who do not qualify to vote a federal services absentee ballot may apply for an advance ballot in the county where they are registered.
