Voting in KS with a Criminal Conviction

If you were convicted of a felony in a state or federal court, you are barred from voting:

  • While incarcerated
  • While on probation
  • While on parole

If you were convicted of a misdemeanor, you never lose the right to vote.

Once you have completed your felony sentence, you can register or re-register to vote.

  • You do not need to show any special documentation.
  • Vote to empower yourself, your family and your community.
  • Vote so that the needs of your community are addressed by those in office.
  • Vote because your voice is important and deserves to be heard. 

Register to vote at your post office, public assistance office or DMV, or download a voter registration form at
