Click the Kansas Secretary of State office link at the bottom of this post to find contact information for your county election office. Early voting ends in all counties at noon on Nov. 4.
Kansas is holding elections for the following, in addition to other elections beyond Ballotpedia’s coverage scope:
  • 19 school board seats in five school districts
  • Mayor of Wichita
  • Three of six seats on the Wichita City Council
  • One statewide ballot measure
The five school districts holding elections are:
  • Circle USD 375
  • Goddard USD 265
  • Haysville USD 261
  • Maize USD 266
  • Wichita Public Schools
Three of Wichita’s seven school board seats are up for election. In each of the other districts, four out of seven school board seats are up for election.
Wichita’s municipal elections and four of the five school district elections (all but Circle USD) take place in Sedgwick County. Early voting in Sedgwick County runs Oct. 21-25, Oct. 28-Nov. 1, and until noon on Nov. 4.
All of Kansas will also vote on a legislatively referred constitutional amendment, Senate Concurrent Resolution 1605. The amendment would end the state’s practice of adjusting the U.S. Census population regarding military personnel and students when redistricting the Kansas State Legislature.
