Kansas' online voter registration application unveiled /

Kansas' online voter registration application unveiled /

“As technology continues to change and evolve, it is important that we implement strategies that will allow the citizens of Kansas to register in a way that is most convenient to them, without sacrificing the security and uniformity that sets our elections systems apart,” Thornburgh said.

The new system allows citizens with a valid Kansas driver’s license, or non-driver’s identification card, to apply to register to vote for the first time, or to make changes to an existing registration. It links voter registration with the Revenue Department’s driver’s license database to verify information.

Since the program was “soft” launched more than three weeks ago, 88 people have used it, officials said.

The application is available at the Secretary of State’s Web site, or the Department of Revenue’s Web site.
