YOUR 2022 ELECTION CHECKLIST

MAKE SURE YOU’RE REGISTERED TO VOTE

Go to KSVotes.org and make sure you’re registered to vote. You'll need to update your registration if you've moved or changed your name. Even if you think you’re registered, it’s good to check before an election. It’s an online form. No need to print anything.

VOTE BY MAIL (We love this one!)

There are a couple of Kansas counties (Douglas and Wyandotte for example) that send out applications to voters for mail-in-ballots. The first rounds of those will likely go out in June. The rest of us will need to fill out an online form to order mail-in-ballots for the August and November elections. You can ask for them both at the same time, but wait until June to do that! 

We highly recommend voting by mail! It's hard to get up to speed on local elections and having your ballot mailed to you gives you time to do your homework. 

And it's easy. You can get on the list to receive a mail-in-ballot by filling out a simple form at KSVotes.org, and submitting it online. The hardest part is signing your name with your mouse! 

Once your application is turned in, your County Clerk or Election Office Office will mail your ballot to your home. It should arrive two weeks or so before Election Day. Then you just need to fill it out and mail it back in! 

KNOW WHO IS RUNNING!

Local candidates don’t have a lot of resources to spend on marketing. But we built a tool that will help you with your research! In July come back  and visit KSBallot.org so you can see who is on your ballot, learn more about what they stand for, find your polling location, make a voting plan, and get reminders to vote.  

VOTE!

If you aren’t voting by mail there are lots of options for voting early in person, including weekend hours in many counties. We will have a list of early voting locations and election day polling sites available at KSBallot.org a few weeks before each election!
