Kansas Voter ID Law

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.

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
  • U.S Passport
  • 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 or handgun license issued by Kansas or by another state
  • Public assistance identification card issued by a Government Office

A voter 65 years or older may use an expired document.

Those individuals 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 a declaration.
