SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION MONTH

The National Association of Secretaries of States has declared September National Voter Registration Month.


This September ask yourself: “Have I moved, changed my name, or turned 18 in the past two years?” If you answered “yes” to any of these questions you probably need to re-register to vote!


To register to vote in Kansas visit your local County Clerk’s or Election Commissioner’s office and request a voter registration form. You can also register to vote at your local Department of Motor Vehicles.


Kansas is proud to be one of eight states that is leading the movement for online voter registration. You can now register to vote online at www.voteks.org. Using online tools, the Secretary of State’s office is making the process easier, faster, and more secure than ever before.


If you’re already registered you can also use the resources at voteks.org to find your polling location, look up your voter registration information, review ballot questions, or request an advance ballot.


The deadline to register is Monday, October 18th. I encourage all eligible Kansas voters to register and then vote on November 2nd.


The Secretary of State’s office is committed to fair, accessible and secure elections in Kansas. Vote in 2010 and our office will make sure your voice is heard.
