Attention Party Changes before Primary are Limited

A law passed in 2014 by the Kansas Legislature, K.S.A. 25-3304 (b), prohibits voters who are members of a political party (Democratic, Republican, Libertarian) from making a change to their party affiliation during a period beginning on the candidate filing deadline, June 1, 2018 at Noon, through the date when the results of the primary election are certified at the end of August. 

However, a registered voter who is unaffiliated may affiliate with a party during this period, when voting at the primary or when requesting an advance ballot.  Voters must complete a new voter registration card to change their party.  Registration application are available online at the Secretary of State www.voteks.org, Elk County Website www.elkcountyks.org or visit the Elk County Clerk/Election Offices.
