Kansas deadline to request absentee ballot is Oct. 29

Kansas voters wishing to cast an absentee ballot in the Nov. 5 election must apply for an absentee ballot by Oct. 29.
The Kansas Secretary of State’s office says absentee ballots, also known as advance ballots, “must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received in the county election office no later than three days after the election. Advance ballots may be hand-delivered to the county election office or to any polling place within the county by close of polls.”
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
  • Three of six seats on the Wichita City Council
  • Mayor of Wichita
  • One statewide ballot measure
The school districts holding elections are:
  • Circle USD 375
  • Goddard USD 265
  • Haysville USD 261
  • Maize USD 266
  • Wichita Public Schools
Three of the Wichita public school district’s seven board seats are up for election. In the other districts, four out of seven school board seats are up for election in each district.
Kansas is also voting 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.
