Voting by mail is one of the best ways to secure your vote. You can apply to have a ballot sent to your house, fill it out, sign it (and sign the outside of the envelope, too!) and mail it in before election day. This saves you time, prevents the weather or a flat tire from keeping you from voting, and helps out your candidate. It may even reduce the robocalls you get!
Each county in Kansas handles advance voting a little different, but many rely on the forms from the Secretary of State's office. We've listed specific counties below where they have their own forms, and the SoS form, too.
How to apply for an advance ballot
