Don't Let Anyone Steal Your Vote

Voting is your RIGHT -- you CANNOT be turned away without casting a vote!

 

As a Kansas voter, you have the right to:

  • Ask questions
  • Request a ballot if you are a United States citizen, 18 years or older, a Kansas resident, registered to vote
  • Vote a provisional ballot if your name is not on the voter registration list or if there is another question about your qualifications to vote
  • Vote in an accessible voting place, and request assistance if needed
  • Review a sample ballot before voting
  • Mark your ballot privately and free from coercion or intimidation
  • Receive instructions on how to contact the appropriate officials if these rights are violated
  • Receive a ballot if you are in line at the time the polls close
  • Obtain up to two replacement ballots if yours is mismarked or spoiled
  • Occupy the voting booth up to five minutes if others are waiting
  • Have your ballot count if it is cast legally and timely

 

If you are told that you cannot vote for any reason, you have the right to cast a provisional ballot.

  • Tell the worker you would like to vote provisionally
  • They are required to give you a paper ballot to fill out
  • The election workers will review your registration after Election Day and determine whether your ballot will be counted

If you have a problem voting -- or if you see a problem at a polling place, such as:

  • Polling place not open, very long lines, or machines broken down

  • Being turned away without being offered a provisional ballot

  • Electioneering -- someone trying to tell you how to vote inside the polling place (or within 250 feet of the entrance)

  • Anything else that keeps someone from casting their vote

Please fill out the form below, including what you saw, where it happened, and when it happened.

We will get in touch if needed.
