This notice covers persons who have applied to register to vote and have not yet provided proof of citizenship. Due to recent court rulings, if you have applied to register to vote at a Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles office or if you have applied to register to vote using the “Federal Form” voter registration application (as opposed to the standard ‘state form’)and have not yet provided proof of citizenship, you are registered to vote unless you receive official notice stating otherwise. Your name will appear on the poll book for your voting location and you will be given a standard ballot.There is nothing further you need to provide unless and until you receive further notice.

If you have questions concerning your eligibility or this notice you may contact the Marion County Clerk's office at (620) 382-2185 or the Secretary of State’s office at (800) 262-8683.
