Kansas Voting Restrictions

Update since 2016: In 2018, a federal district court struck down the state’s documentary proof of citizenship law. That decision is on appeal.

New restriction(s) in place for the first time in 2016: Documentary proof of citizenship required to register using the state registration form. But, by court order, certain individuals who registered without showing documentary proof must be permitted to vote.

Restriction(s) in place for the first time in 2012: Photo ID required to vote.

Click here to see the types of ID required under Kansas’s law.

Background: The documentary proof of citizenship requirement has been the subject of multiple lawsuits. A 2014 federal court ruling had found the requirement unenforceable on the federal mail-in voter registration form. But in January 2016, the Election Assistance Commission’s Executive Director announced that documentary proof of citizenship would be added to the national voter registration form instructions for Kansas, as well as Alabama and Georgia. A federal appeals court blocked the registration requirement for the national from on September 9, 2016. That action is the subject of an ongoing lawsuit.

A Republican-controlled legislature passed both the photo ID and documentary proof of citizenship requirements in 2011, and they were signed by a GOP governor.

$1.50 WILL HELP FIGHT VOTER SUPPRESSION

The fight for equal voting rights is good trouble, necessary trouble.

$1.50 can combat voter suppression and support one more person's ability to register to vote. Register2Vote makes it easy to register voters by sending a pre-filled voter registration form and a stamped envelope to eligible unregistered voters so all they have to do is sign it and drop it in the mail. This system has been used to register thousands of voters since 2018 and we hope to help register many more.

Hover over a region in our interactive map to see counts of unregistered voters for a specific district on the map. Dive in; you can go as specific as the precinct level. See the "Percent Funded" chart to understand how much work we have left to do.

Here's how to use this map:


1. Explore the map.
Hover over a region to see counts of unregistered voters for a specific district on the map. Dive in; you can go as specific as the precinct level. See the "Percent Funded" chart to understand how much work we have left to do.


2. Chip in to help register voters.
For whatever dollar amount you choose to contribute, our automated system will mail registration forms to residents in that region, and our system will update the "Percent Funded" accordingly. That way, you can follow the impact you're making!


3. Voter registration goes into the mail!
We make it as easy as possible, and take all the headache out of the process -- all someone has to do is sign the form, and put it back into the mail using our postage-paid envelope.


4. We track completion.
It's super important that these voter registration forms get exactly where they need to go -- and that's what we do best! Our team not only tracks whether a form has been completed, we track whether it's been received by the elections office. It's the only way to be sure, and we take extra care to ensure that nobody's registration form gets lost in the shuffle.


5. Our team follows up.
Our team tracks the entire process of voter registration, end-to-end. For voters who signed up using our online form, or for those who used MapTheVote to get their neighbors registered, our team will follow up with an SMS message or an email.


6. More voters = Stronger democracy!
Voting is essential to democracy and an effective government. The more people we include, the stronger our democracy!
