Registration is the first step before voting

To the editor: 

As we approach the 2022 general election, I write to remind voters that the deadline to register to vote for the November 8 election is October 18. 

Whether you are registering for the first time, have moved, or changed your name, you must complete a voter registration form. Registering to vote is easy and safe! Kansans can register to vote at their county election office, at the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), or online at This .gov site lets Kansans know they are accessing an official, secure government website, rather than a non-governmental third-party site.

To register to vote online, you must have a valid Kansas driver’s license or non-driver’s identification card. Individuals who do not have either form of identification can register to vote using a paper application available at under the Elections tab. Voters who cannot afford an ID card may apply for a free non-driver’s ID card through the Department of Revenue.

I encourage all eligible Kansans to register to vote or update their voter registration before the October 18 deadline and exercise their right to vote in the upcoming election on Tuesday, November 8.
