KANSAS VOTER ID LAW Beginning in 2012, every voter must show photo ID when voting. A voter requesting a ballot by mail must either write his or her driver's license number on the application or send a copy of a photo ID to get a ballot. VALID PHOTOGRAPHIC IDENTIFICATION DOCUMENTS The following documents may be used as identification for purposes of voting in Kansas:
Driver's license or ID card issued by Kansas or by another state
Student ID card from an accredited post-secondary education institution in Kansas
U.S. military ID
Employee badge or identification document issued by a government office
Concealed carry of handgun license issued by Kansas or by another state
Public assistance identification card issued by a government office
A voter age 65 or older may use an expired document. Certain individuals are exempt from the ID requirements: permanent advance voters (voters with illnesses or disabilities), overseas military voters and their spouses and dependents, and voters with religious objections who sign declarations.
Law Regarding Party Affiliation Change
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 25 3304
