Voter Registration

If you are registering to vote in Kansas for the first time, you will need to provide proof of U.S. citizenship. Fore more information, review this PDF from the Douglas County Clerk's office.

Individuals registered to vote in Kansas as of January 1, 2013, are deemed to have submitted proof of citizenship and are exempt from the requirement as long as they remain on the voter registration list. Moving from one place to another within Kansas or modifying one's registration records does not require the person to re-submit proof of citizenship. If a voter's registration is canceled, the person must submit a citizenship document when re-registering.

If you have moved since you last voted, you should update your voter registration with the County Clerk's office so that you will be assigned to the correct voting precinct.
