Voter Registration Information

Voter Registration Application

Search your voter registration information on the Kansas VoterView site.
New Identification Requirements Effective 7/1/2004
If you are a first-time voter in the county there are identification requirements that must be met. Please note the "Notice to first-time voters" section on the application form for details. Also be aware that if we are unable to verify the required information you provide (i.e. - your current KS driver's license number or the last four digits of your Social Security number), you must provide identification prior to the first time you vote in the county.

A Voter registration application form is available by clicking above. Forms are also available in the County Clerk’s office. Please carefully read and follow the instructions to complete all information. Sign and mail the form to the Sumner County Election Office, 501 N. Washington, Rm 101, Wellington, Ks. 67152. Voter Registration Applications must contain an original signature and cannot be faxed. The last four (4) digits of your social security number or your entire driver’s license number are required.

If you change your name or address, or wish to change your party affiliation, you are required to update your voter registration.

A Voter registration application must be postmarked no later than the 15th day prior to any election in order to be eligible to vote. Registration closes 14 days prior to any election and reopens the day after the election.

Law Regarding Party Affiliation Change


At this time, we are unable to accept any request to change party affiliation.  By law, from noon on June 1 through August 31, anyone affiliated with the Democratic,Republican, or Libertarian party may not switch to another party or elect to become unaffiliated. 

If you still wish to change your party affiliation after the August Primary Election, you will need to resubmit another voter registration application after September 1.

The Kansas Legislature passed a law in 2014 which prohibits voters from switching parties or disaffiliating from a party during the time from the candidate filing deadline through the time when the primary election results are certified by the State Board of Canvassers.  K.S.A 253304
