For Kansas voters, 2024 is a packed year with multiple elections coming up, including the presidential primary, the primary election and the general election. To register to vote in these elections, you must meet the following requirements:

  • not claim the right to vote in any other location or under any other name
  • not be excluded from voting by a court of competent jurisdiction


New voting system for Kansas

For the first time since 1992, Kansas will have a presidential preference primary. This is a primary election in which a voter indicates a preference for a particular candidate to be a party's nominee for the presidency. It is referred to as a “preference” primary because the vote totals are given to a political party to allocate delegates to candidates at the national convention.
