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 office or the Secretary of State’s office at (800) 262-8683.

Voter Registration


Visit the voter registration website to download a form that you can fill out, print, sign, and mail or drop by the election office at your convenience. You can also register online. You should register if you:
  • Just moved into Reno County
  • Just turned 18 years old or will be 18 before the next election
  • Just became a United States citizen
  • Have never voted before in Reno County
If you are already registered, you should re-register if you:
  • Moved within Reno County
  • Changed your name
  • Want to change your party affiliation

Law Regarding Party Affiliation Change

 At this time, we are unable to accept any request to change party affiliation.  By law, from noon on June 1 through August 31, 2016, anyone affiliated with the Democratic, Republican, or Libertarian party may not switch to another party or elect to become unaffiliated. 

 If you still wish to change your party affiliation after the August Primary Election, you will need to resubmit another voter registration application after September 1.

 The Kansas Legislature passed a law in 2014 which prohibits voters from switching parties or disaffiliating from a party during the time from the candidate filing deadline through the time when the primary election results are certified by the State Board of Canvassers.  K.S.A 253304
