General Information from the Secretary of State's Office


Advance Voting may begin up to 20 days before any election. The exact date might vary by county.

If you wish to vote by advance ballot, it is your responsibility to apply to the Election Office for your ballot. By law no ballot will be issued before a signed application is received in the Election Office.

It is illegal for any person or group to delay or interfere with the transmission of applications from voters to the Election Office. Persons or groups transmitting applications for voters must mail, fax or deliver them to the Election Office within two days from the time they are signed.

The Election Office will mail your ballot within 2 days of receiving your application. If you receive an application with an address other than the Election Office pre-printed on the mailing side of the application, it could delay or prevent delivery of your ballot.

Your ballot may be delivered only to your residential or mailing address as indicated on the voter registration list, to your temporary residential address, or to a medical care facility where you reside. These restrictions do not apply to sick, disabled or illiterate voters.



Safeguarding Your Advance Ballot


All voters who are voting by mail should follow these simple steps to protect the integrity of their ballot:

  • Vote the ballot yourself. Do not let another person tell you how you should vote.
  • If you are physically unable to vote the ballot, be certain that the person assisting you can be trusted and is NOT: with a political campaign; your employer; agent of employer; or officer or agent of a union to which you are a member. If you do require assistance, an "Affidavit of Assistance in the County of Marshall, State of Kansas " must be completed and you will find it printed on the back of the return envelope.
