TOPEKA, Kan. -- In two weeks, Kansans will cast their ballots to elect the next president of the United States and other elected officials.

"I encourage any voter who is unaware of his or her voting registration status to check online using Kansas VoterView, a tool located at," Secretary of State Kris Kobach said.

Just by entering your first name, last name and date of birth, you can find your voter registration status, precinct, current voting districts and even your sample ballot.

"After the federal court redrew the district lines, some voters' polling locations changed accordingly. This internet resource provides an easy way to verify your voting location," Kobach said.

State law requires that all voters show photo identification each time they vote. Acceptable forms of ID include driver's license, nondriver's ID, concealed carry license, U.S. Passport, government employee ID, military ID, college student ID, public assistance ID or Indian tribe ID.
